The Initiative menschenrechte. jetzt. – human rights. now. – brings together more than 270 Non-governmental organisations  with endorsement of a further 110 organisations in Austria in support of a Joint Submission to the Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic Review.

The Universal Periodic Review „is a new and unique human rights mechanism of the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Council aiming at improving the human rights situation on the ground of each of the 193 UN Member States,“ per the group monitoring the process.

In addition to the Joint Report for the Second Cycle, there is a List of all suggested recommendations  for Austria’s Second UPR scheduled for November 9, 2015.

This web site provides information – mainly in German – to those interested in the Review’s process.
