Ethiopia: DefendDefenders submits joint report to the 33rd Session of the UPR Working Group

The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is a unique process which involves a review of the human rights records of all UN Member States. The process provides for the participation of all relevant stakeholders, including non-governmental organisations and national human rights institutions (NHRIs). Civil society actors and NHRIs can submit information which can be added to the “other stakeholders” report to be considered during the review.

On 4 October 2018, for the 33rd Session of the UPR Working Group, DefendDefenders submitted a joint report for Ethiopia’s review.

Submitted by: CIVICUS: World Alliance for Citizen Participation, Association for Human Rights in Ethiopia (AHRE), DefendDefenders (the East and Horn of Africa Human Rights Defenders Project), Committee to Protect Journalists, Article 19, Consortium of Ethiopian Rights Organizations (CERO), Pen International, Access Now.
