The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is a process where countries that are members of the UN Human Rights Council review each other’s human rights situation. The new guide aims to raise awareness and understanding of the UPR among children, empowering them to engage with the process.

The guide is available in English, French and Spanish. Its design and content have been informed by a consultation involving over 140 children from around the world.
