The Universal Periodic Review Project and Support

Law in Action assist NGOs  in reporting on the United Kingdom's progress in implementing recommendations it received during its last review under the UN Universal Periodic Review (UPR) procedure on the 24th May 2012.

The UPR is a state-driven review mechanism of United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC) directed at scrutinising the human rights record of each UN member state.

Law in Action produced a toolkit which details every Recommendation made to the UK by other States, and details what they relate to and whether they have been accepted. We hope to use the toolkit to raise awareness of the recommendations made in respect of the UK, and also more generally, the UPR framework itself.

We are aware that civil society organisations often lack the time and resources required to make use of such valuable reporting mechanisms and we have  opportunities to assist NGOs in drafting reports on recommendations.

If you are a student or member of civil society and are interested in our materials or work, please contact us at:
