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 lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people.
