Good practice in the Universal Periodic Review: Uruguay
To date, Amnesty International has made submissions for 117 country reviews in the second cycle. In each of these, the organization has undertaken an assessment of the State’s implementation of key recommendations accepted in the previous review. All too often Amnesty International has had to conclude that nothing or very little has been achieved by the State in response to recommendations. However, there are also many examples of very positive developments in countries following their review, prompted by recommendations made during their UPR. One such example is Uruguay.
