United Kingdom’s Universal Periodic Review
Michael Lane, the new Lecturer in Law at Newman University, recently presented his research at a Conference on the United Kingdom’s Universal Periodic Review (UPR), a UN forum for improving countries’ human rights records.
The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is a unique process which involves a review of the human rights records of all UN Member States.
The Conference was for civil society organisations to discuss the potential for the UK’s UPR to inform their work. In attendance were representatives from prominent human rights organisations such as the Equality and Human Rights Commission, Human Rights Watch, and Liberty.
