Join the Universal Periodic Review third session live from 1-12 December 2008 on the U.N. Human Rights Council Web Cast or Archives for third session National Reports. U.N. Member States reports are not always given in the order posted by the U.N. Human Rights Council. You can go to the Archives at any time during the third session to listen and view the Member States reports and make your comments on the C&C Database.
Many U.N. Member States National Reports do not include enough information on Article 18 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the 1981 U.N. Declaration on the Elimination of All Forms of Intolerance and of Discrimination Based on Religion or Belief, for follow-up of Universal Periodic Reports.
This is an opportunity to listen and watch the live and archived web cast of the National Reports and inter-active dialogue with U.N. Member States. Read the U.S. State Department International Religious Freedom Reports on each country and make known your thoughts on the Right to Freedom of Religion or Belief by response to an article, paragraph or term in the C&C Database.

The Universal Periodic Review is a process before a final UPR review is adopted by the U.N. Human Rights Council. There is a two week period for the State to respond after the adoption by the U.N. Human Rights Council. We will post the final review after the two week adoption period and it is posted under Countries on the Office of High Commissioner for Human Rights web site.
