The virtual side event to the 47th Regular Sessionof the Human Rights Council will be hosted on Zoom on Friday, 9 July 2021 from 13:00 to 14:00 CEST. 

​​​​​​In 2020, Child Rights Connect and UPR Info jointly developed a child-friendly guide to the Universal Periodic Review (UPR).

This year, the Portuguese Ministry of Labor, Solidarity and Social Security translated the guide into Portuguese.
