Initially, the e-HUB was conceived as a response to the Covid-19 restrictions, but it currently offers an opportunity to envision new models of human rights training that can easily adapt to the evolving needs of stakeholders.
UPR Info is an international non-governmental organization based in Geneva, Switzerland.
UPR Info has built over the years a unique expertise in the field of the UPR mechanism. It is the only organization focusing on the promotion and respect of human rights through this human rights mechanism.
Our training programs foster a conducive environment for civil society, national human rights institutions, and States to advance to the realization of human rights and progress on inclusive development that leaves no one behind through the UPR.
In addition, through our training programs, we strive to bring a differentiated response to issues affecting women and girls, and vulnerable and marginalized groups.
