The UPR is a mechanism to review the protection and promotion of human rights in all member states of the United Nations. States make recommendations on the human rights situations in the states under review.

Within this UPR Togo, Syria, Venezuela, Iceland, Zimbabwe, Lithuania, Uganda, Timor-Leste, Moldavia, Haiti and South Sudan had been reviewed. After having presented their national reports, an interactive dialogue took place during which the international community had the opportunity to make recommendations or ask questions concering the human rights situation. 

Germany made recommendations for all eleven states under review. You can find our statements on the right side.

During the upcoming Human Rights Council session in March 2017 the recently reviewed states will present an interim report on their present situation (acceptance and implementation of given recommendations).
