Upcoming UPR review for Kenya, Kiribati, Lesotho Granada and Guyana

The next Universal Periodic Review Process of the UN Human Rights Council will be assessing the human rights records of the following Commonwealth countries – Kenya, Kiribati, Lesotho Granada and Guyana. The review will take place in January/February 2015.

Civil society has been invited to provide information to the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), which will prepare a summary of provided information and present it to the review.

The individual submissions (by 1 NGO) to the OHCHR should not be longer than 5 pages (and not exceed 2815 words), and can be submitted only one per NGO. However, the submissions by coalitions of stakeholders (2 NGOs and more) can be up to ten pages (and not exceed 5630 words). Individual organisations can be a part of as many coalition submissions as they deem necessary.

CHRI urges local civil society to become involved in the UPR process by making individual submissions. If your organisation wishes to join CHRI in a joint submission please get in touch.

The Deadline for such submissions is 15 June 2014. Submissions should be uploaded to https://uprdoc.ohchr.org before 11.59 pm on 15 June 2014.

The value of the UPR is that it is a formalised process that all stakeholders, including Government, civil society organisations, the UN, National Human Rights Institutions, are entitled to participate.  This format ensures that a balanced picture of the domestic human rights situation is presented, and the local civil society participation is crucial to obtain this goal.

In addition, please find attached more information about the Universal Periodic Review and how civil society can participate in it. Also find attached OHCHR's latest guidelines and a template the CHRI has put together to help with the preparation of submissions.
