The Ministry of Justice coordinates the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) for the United Kingdom. The United Kingdom last underwent the UPR in 2012. In August 2014, the United Kingdom submitted a mid term report on the recommendations received at the conclusion of the UPR in 2012.
Also in August 2014, the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) published its Mid-Term Universal Periodic Review Report (UPR). This is the EHRC’s independent assessment on the UK’s progress on meeting the UPR recommendations in England, Wales and Scotland at the mid-point of the 2nd UPR cycle.
