"(...) UPR Info has extensive experience in developing the capacities of the various partners in advocating for the respect of human rights. The organization's promotion of the Universal Periodic Review as well as their work of strengthening the mechanism as an effective tool to improve the respect for human rights on the ground make it one of the main actors in international democratic monitoring."

Just completed the third session 'designing an action plan' of the program called The UPR: Bringing changes through advocacy and accountability. Very informative and interesting information that I am ready to share with national youth advocates of SRHR.

We also attended a few pre-sessions from other countries and were blown away by how much practical on-the-ground information we gained about the human rights situation in other countries. We learned a lot from that.

Equality Now, Malawi . Participant Pre Session 36

It was a great experience to have been part of. It has helped me understand the advocacy process better and will be prepared for future engagements. The UPR pre-session team was good at communicating around the process and keeping us informed. They did a great job and welcomed the specific feedback on our statement as well.
