The UN General Assembly, in its resolution 60/251 mandated the Human Rights Council to undertake a universal periodic review, based on objective and reliable information, of the fulfilment by each state of its human rights obligations in a manner which ensures universality of coverage and equal treatment with respect to all states. All member states of the Council are to be reviewed during their term of membership. At its fifth session, the Council adopted, in resolution 5/1, detailed provisions regarding the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) mechanism. This article explores the bases for the review, its advantages and challenges, and its features.
