UPR

The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is a unique process of reviewing the human rights records of all UN Member States. It provides an opportunity for all States to declare what actions they have taken to improve the human rights situations in their countries and to overcome challenges to the enjoyment of human rights. In October 2011, Uganda underwent its first cycle of the UPR. Following the assessment, 130 recommendations were accepted by the Government, 52 recommendations were not accepted, and 10 voluntary pledges were made. In November 2016, Uganda will undergo its second cycle of the UPR.
