Universal Periodic Review – schedule of countries under review

Universal Periodic Review(UPR) – another avenue of action towards abolition of Death Penalty

 

ADPAN together with other CSOs have prepared a submission for the upcoming UPR of Japan [6-17 November 2017] – It was after the deadline, so we are making efforts to get it to all member nations of the UN, and hoping to lobby them to incorporate our suggested recommendations during the UPR..(it can be found on this ADPAN website)
* JAPAN – UPR Joint Submission by ADPAN and 14 CSOs

 

ADPAN is working on submissions for Pakistan and Bangladesh. Our focus due to limited resources will be on retentionist countries, and other countries of concern, that are at risk of bringing back the death penalty, or removing existing moratorium on executions.
