U.S. GOVERNMENT ADDENDUM TO THE WORKING GROUP REPORT OF THE UN HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL UNIVERSAL PERIODIC REVIEW OF THE UNITED STATES: USHRN Annotated Document with Insertion of Recommendation Language

Resource Type: 

On September 1, 2015, the U.S. Government released its addendum to the UPR Report. This document is a response to the 343 recommendations made by the UN Human Rights Council during the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of the U.S. in May 2015. These responses will be formerly adopted at the UN on September 24, 2015. Many of the responses only include reference to recommendation and do not reference the issue areas of those recommendations. In an effort to make the document easier to navigate for U.S. civil society, the US Human Rights Network (USHRN)1 has inserted the contents of those recommendations into the government’s response in the below document in parantheses.
