Progress on Implementation of Child Focused UPR Recommendations: A mid-term assessment by stakeholders

The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is a new United Nations’ human rights mechanism under which the human rights situation of every UN member state is reviewed on a periodic basis. UPR aims to improve the human rights situation of the member states where every country gets the opportunity to present what actions they have taken to improve the human rights situation in their countries and to fulfill their commitments given in the previous cycle.

As two years have passed since the second cycle of UPR on Bangladesh held in Geneva in 2013, Child Rights Advocacy Coalition in Bangladesh (CRAC,B), a coalition of international organizations, Networks, Alliances and national organization working for children formed to carry out coordinated and concerted advocacy with the government of Bangladesh to uphold child rights in line with UNCRC and UPR commitments, has prepared this report assessing the implementation of the child focused UPR recommendations.

It is hoped that this assessment will present a reflection of the existing scenario and identify the issues that require advocacy by the civil society organizations working on child rights and eventually to be engaged with the Government. Governments are also expected to take into consideration the assessment and recommendations while addressing the most under-addressed recommendations of the UPR.
