UNZIPPING THE UNIVERSAL PERIODIC REVIEW (UNZIP THE LIPS, 2016)

The Universal Periodic review is a review process in which all member states of the United Nations take part every 4 to 5 years. Countries review each other's progress on human rights in an effort to create meaningful change on the ground in terms of improving people's human rights. This guide outlines how the UPR process works, and provides step by step actions community organisations can take to ensure that the human rights issues they face receive attention as part of the UPR. This guide is produced by the Unzip the Lips platform, of which APNSW is a member.
