Universal Periodic Review

The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of the Human Rights Council is a four/five year process during which all states’ overall human rights records are reviewed. During the first cycle of the UPR, 2008-2011, recommendations on corporal punishment were made to all Caribbean states except Haiti. The second cycle is under way and some states have received recommendations. All recommendations concerning corporal punishment are included in state and territory reports
