New Study: Emerging Good Practices from the UPR

A new study, commissioned by OHCHR (UPR Branch), has been published ahead of the upcoming 4th Cycle. It highlights emerging Good Practices (GPs) from seven countries drawn from the first three cycles of the UPR. The study illustrates that the lasting benefit of engagement of all national actors with the UPR is an increase in transparency regarding compliance by States with their human rights obligations and the increase of opportunities to learn and engage with the UN human rights system.

As reported in the introduction of the publication, "The study, focusing primarily on institutional, participatory and procedural aspects, illustrates that the lasting benefit of engagement of all national actors with the UPR is an increase in transparency regarding compliance by States with their human rights obligations and the increase of opportunities to learn from, and engage actively with the UN human rights system – with the aim to improve the human rights situation on the ground and to realize the rights of all people in society, beginning with the most vulnerable, marginalized and discriminated."

The author of the study is Miloon Kothari,  independent expert on human rights and social policy and President of UPR Info.
