Universal Periodic Review
Do you want to hold your country accountable for what it claims it is doing to honor your human rights? There is actually a way to do this through a process initiated by the UN Human Rights Council–the Universal Periodic Review (UPR). Follow the directions in the next paragraph to find a Power Point tutorial on the UN UPR in all four languages. You can find the same presentation on this page: http://www.unanima-international.org/what-you-can-do Also posted in this section (under Resources) is an example of a “Shadow Report”on childtrafficking, prepared for the Human Rights review of the United States this year by Edmund Rice International and co-sponsored by UNANIMA. Here is the link to that report: http://www.unanima-international.org/wp-content/uploads/Stakeholder-Report-UPR-of-USA.pdf
