​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​UPR Sessions

Back

According to the Human Rights Council’s “institution-building package” (HRC resolution 5/1), read in conjunction with HRC resolution 16/21, the Universal Periodic Review Working Group will hold three two-week sessions per year. During each session, 14 countries will be reviewed, therefore 42 countries per year and 193 countries, i.e. the entire UN membership, by the end of each UPR cycle.  On 17 June 2011, the Human Rights Council adopted decision 17/119, which includes a calendar detailing the order for the UN Member States to be considered during the second and subsequent UPR cycles. Each review is facilitated by groups of three States, or “troikas”, who act as rapporteurs.

The following is the list of sessions scheduled as from the 1st cycle, including the list of countries being reviewed during the session, as well as the timetables for each two-week session and the list of “troikas” for each review, where available.
