In the context of the upcoming 4th cycle of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR), this online event – co-organized with UPR Info, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), and GANHRI – will discuss a new study commissioned by OHCHR on emerging good practices based on seven countries and drawn from the first three cycles of the UPR.
The seven countries covered by the study are Denmark, Georgia, Kenya, Malaysia, Morocco, New Zealand, and Peru. The good practices highlighted in the study include the development of national coordination mechanisms for implementation, reporting and monitoring, human rights action plans, the development of methodologies and tools to follow up on recommendations, the benefits of mid-term reporting, the positive impact of technical cooperation and development assistance, and the integration of UPR recommendations in the context of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals.

This short course, which can be followed in Geneva or online, analyses the main international and regional norms governing the international protection of refugees. It notably examines the sources of international refugee law, including the 1951 Geneva Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, and their interaction with human rights law and international humanitarian law.
Resulting from traditional legal research and informal interviews with experts, the project aims at examining how – if at all possible – IHL could be more systematically, appropriately and correctly dealt with by the human rights mechanisms emanating from the Charter of the United Nations, as well from universal and regional treaties.
