ILGA (International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association) is currently exploring the different follow-up and implementation activities that civil society organisations have undertaken with the Universal Periodic Review (UPR).
The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is a unique process which involves a periodic review of the human rights records of all 193 UN Member States. The UPR is a significant innovation of the Human Rights Council, which is based on equal treatment for all countries.
Under this mechanism, the human rights situation of all UN Member States is reviewed every 5 years. 42 States are reviewed each year during three Working Group sessions dedicated to 14 States each. These three sessions are usually held in January/February, May/June and October/November.
If you’re part of an LGBTI organisation that’s been involved with this important part of the UPR process and would like to share your strategies and stories, complete our short multiple-choice survey.
It will only take 7 minutes to complete and you could help make the UPR a mechanism that works for LGBTI civil society!
The deadline to respond to this survey is May 7.
