Universal Periodic Review is a global platform provided by United Nations Human Rights Council to the governments and civil society members to put forth human rights issues on a periodic basis. In this regard, a UPR report on Freedom of Association and Peaceful Assembly was also submitted to the thirty-seventh session of the Human Rights Council’s UPR working group.
In January 2021 during the third cycle, UN member states discussed the report and provided their recommendations to the Nepal government to promote and protect human rights in Nepal.
What were the recommendations on the second cycle of UPR held five hours ago? What were the government’s commitments? After this, what recommendations have been made in the third cycle of UPR? What should be the government’s plan to implement those?
This 105th episode of the Freedom Chautary podcast features above mentioned questions. Let’s listen to a short review of UPR on Freedom of Association and Peaceful Assembly.
