Tips for Local and Regional Governments wishing to participate to the Universal Periodic Review

The Coalition for Local and Regional Governments (LRGs) in the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) publishes “UPR Tips for LRGs” to provide information to LRGs interested to take part and contribute to this unique human rights mechanism. The leaflet provides background information on the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) mechanism and its functioning, the features that makes it unique, the reasons why LRGs should get involved in the UPR, the links that exist between the UPR and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and most importantly, it puts forward recommendations to both LRGs wishing to participate in UPR and States wishing to support LRGs participation in the UPR.
