• Debate over the list of speakers!

    The fourth UPR session has to face a new procedural problem: the extensive list of States willing to take the floor. First, due to long queues to enrol on the list of speakers, the time was extended to 25 minutes before the normal time to enrol (half a day before the review). Second, too many States are willing to participate to accommodate them all within the 2 hours allocated.
  • Responses to recommendations: some States fail to take clear position

    Responses to recommendations vary greatly among States under Review. Some provide a clear answer to all of them, either accepting or rejecting them (Algeria, Switzerland, Ukraine and Tonga), others only comment them (Poland, Czech Republic and France) and a few fail to provide any type of response (South Africa, Gabon and Guatemala).
