UPR Info held its General Assembly on 27 April 2012 and approved its 2011 Annual Report.
2011 concluded the first cycle of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR). UPR Info concluded this first cycle by closely following the completion of the Human Rights Council review in March 2011 and its follow-up decision in June, by organising a highly attended celebration of the first cycle in October and by launching ground-breaking tutorials on the UPR process. Finally, in order to prepare for the second cycle, we started a new project on the Follow-up to the UPR recommendations. The project has produced and published assessments of the implementation of recommendations in 36 countries at mid-term.
Through those different activities, UPR Info has developed its capacity in terms of off-line activities. On the organisation side, we are proud to announce the election of a new President. Former acting High Commissioner Bertrand G. Ramcharan has been appointed President of UPR Info in January 2011. We also established an Advisory Board composed of five members from the academic, civil society and governmental spheres.
In 2011, our website received 65’742 visits from 185 countries. This represents an increase of 34% in comparison with 2010.
