In the context of the upcoming 4th cycle of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR), this online event – co-organized with UPR Info, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), and GANHRI – will discuss a new study commissioned by OHCHR on emerging good practices based on seven countries and drawn from the first three cycles of the UPR.
The seven countries covered by the study are Denmark, Georgia, Kenya, Malaysia, Morocco, New Zealand, and Peru. The good practices highlighted in the study include the development of national coordination mechanisms for implementation, reporting and monitoring, human rights action plans, the development of methodologies and tools to follow up on recommendations, the benefits of mid-term reporting, the positive impact of technical cooperation and development assistance, and the integration of UPR recommendations in the context of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals.
