Universal Periodic Toolkit - A guide for country programs

The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is an inter-governmental human rights review within the Human Rights Council in Geneva. It offers real opportunities to child rights organizations seeking to raise the political profile of children and non-implementation of child rights obligations by governments in a global setting. The Universal Periodic Review assesses the extent to which governments are meeting their obligations to protect, respect and fulfil human rights, including child rights, in their countries.

This toolkit shows how Save the Children and other children's rights organisations in a few steps can influence government policy and practice, and move children further up the political agenda. This UPR toolkit is also available in Portuguese, French, Spanish and Arabic. Please also read 'The Universal Periodic Review Toolkit Add-On', which contains up-to-date information on the UPR process, available in English, Spanish and French.
