Final Operation Report: The UN Human Rights Mechanisms: Advocacy on the Post Universal Periodic Review

Odhikar has closely been monitoring the UPR process from the very beginning through documentation, fact finding and advocacy on human rights issues. In order to raise awareness on the issues relating to human rights, Odhikar organised two post-UPR consultations in Dhaka and in Chittagong to review the present human rights situation and to follow the pledges that Bangladesh had made at the UN Human Rights Council’s 16th session of the Universal Periodic Review Working Group in Geneva in April 2013. Both the consultations were focused on the UPR recommendations relating to an enabling environment for civil society including the freedoms of expression, assembly and association, and issues regarding persecution of human rights defenders.
