Back

According to the Human Rights Council’s “institution-building package”, the Universal Periodic Review Working Group will hold three two-week sessions per year. During each session 16 countries will be reviewed, therefore 48 countries per year and 192 countries by 2011, or the entire UN membership over the course of the first UPR cycle (2008-2011). On 21 September 2007, the Human Rights Council adopted a calendar detailing the order in which the 192 UN Member States will be considered during the first four-year cycle. Each review is facilitated by groups of three States, or “troikas”, who act as rapporteurs.

The following is the list of sessions scheduled for the 1st four-year cycle, including the list of countries being reviewed during the session, as well as the timetables for each two-week session and the list of “troikas” for each review, where available. 

(Please note: The order of review, timetables and list of troikas are only determined shortly before the respective sessions. All documents below are available in Pdf format)​
