Weengage with the Human Rights Council's review process in offering support to theUPR Pre-sessions, providing capacity building for UPR stakeholders and National Human Rights Institutions, and the filing ofstakeholder reports in selected sessions. The UPR Projectis designed to help meet the challenges facing the safeguarding of human rights around the world, and to helpensure that UPR recommendations are translated into domestic legal change in member state parliaments. We fully support the UPR ethos of encouraging the sharing of best practice globally to protect everyone's human rights.The UPR Project at BCU engageswith the UPRregularly as a stakeholder,having submitted seven reports and beencited by the OHCHR.
