UPR Info successfully organised the most recent series of Pre-sessions on 9-12 October 2018 ahead of the 31st session of the UPR. The international human rights conference gave national human rights defenders from Belize; Central African Republic; Chad; China; Congo (Republic of); Jordan; Malaysia; Malta; Mauritius; Mexico; Monaco; Nigeria; Saudi Arabia; and Senegal the opportunity to present their concerns and recommendations ahead of the country reviews in the UPR Working Group from 5-16 November 2018. Held in the Palais des Nations, the Pre-sessions provided Permanent Missions with specific and action-oriented UPR recommendations drafted by civil society, which reflect the needs of the rights-holders.
