Universal Periodic Review of the United Nations Human Rights Council: Sweden's national mid-term report

Published · Updated


This report follows up the implementation of the recommendations Sweden accepted during its review in the UPR in May 2010. The next review of Sweden within the UPR, which among other things aims at following up the first review, is scheduled for 2015. Sweden is thereby approximately in the middle of the implementation phase.

The UN General Assembly calls on Member States to provide the UN Human Rights Council, on a voluntary basis, with a mid-term update on how the implementation of accepted recommendations is proceeding. Sweden sees the value of such a mid-term report, both for the implementation of the accepted recommendations and for the development of Sweden's work for human rights more generally. Sweden thus joins the increasing number of countries which, in accordance with the General Assembly's request, have presented a mid-term report.
