UNA Georgetown Puts “U” in UPR
April 3, 2014
The UPR is a tool of the new UN Human Rights Council—established in 2006—which assesses the human rights records of all 193 UN members. To date, 100 percent of UN members have participated in the UPR, including the United States. As grassroots input is vital to the completion of each country’s review, UNA-USA hopes to submit the findings of Chapter-based UPR discussions and consultations occurring across the country to the U.S. State Department and UN Human Rights Council later in year.
