Universal Periodic Review (UPR)
Fact sheets for NGOs: With our partner organisation, UPR Info, we have developed 4 fact sheets for NGOs on the Universal Periodic Review. The fact sheets include a basic overview of this mechanism as well as information about how NGOs can use it for their advocacy work at national and international levels.
This fact sheet provides information for NGOs about how to prepare and submit a written report for consideration in relation to the UPR of a given State. The fact sheet details how best to capture child rights issues and present them in a way that communicates key messages effectively to States.
This fact sheet provides information for NGOS about how to advocate in the UPR. It details the importance of NGO advocacy in the UPR and the key characteristics of an effective advocacy strategy.
