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. 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. The UPR also includes a sharing of best human rights practices around the globe. Currently, no other mechanism of this kind exists.
Centre For Human Rights Research and Advocacy (CENTHRA) and Institut Masa Depan Malaysia (MASA) with the support of Majlis Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan (MAIWP) will be having a Research Coordination Meeting to finalise the Mid-Term Report on Malaysia’s 3rd Cycle in the UPR Process.
Please take note that the event is by invitation only.
