• 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.
• NGOs can make submissions with recommendations on how to improve the human rights situation in each State under review.
