    Universal Periodic Review

    The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is a mechanism of the United Nations Human Rights Council, which allows scrutiny of the human rights records of all UN States. The UPR is a valuable tool for challenging and encouraging States to do more to protect the rights of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender and intersex people.

    El Examen Periódico Universal (“UPR”, por sus siglas en inglés) es un mecanismo del Consejo de Derechos Humanos de las Naciones Unidas que permite el escrutinio de los historiales de derechos humanos de todos los Estados miembros de las Naciones Unidas.  El UPR es una valiosa herramienta para retar y motivar a los Estados a que hagan más por proteger los derechos de las personas lesbianas, gais, bisexuales, transgéneros e intersexos.

    L’Examen périodique universel (EPU) est un mécanisme du Conseil des droits de l’homme des Nations unies qui révise le dossier en matière de droits de la personne de tous les États membres des Nations unies. L’EPU est un outil valable pour remettre en question et encourager les États à faire plus pour protéger les droits des lesbiennes, des gais, des personnes bisexuelles, transgenres et intersexes.
