The United States believes the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) has the potential to effect real change in countries throughout the world. The UPR is not just something that occurs in Geneva every four and half years. It is an ongoing, daily tool to advance human rights. Our interventions to other countries are crafted with the goal of providing useful, targeted recommendations that, when implemented, will create positive change for society.
The 13th UPR Session is occurring from May 21 – 31 and is the beginning of the second cycle of reviews. Please see below for our interventions to the 14 countries participating in Session 13.
Each link below will become active once its intervention is available.
