UAE must implement UN recommendations on rights to freedom of expression, association, and assembly
The Gulf Centre for Human Rights (GCHR) calls on the United Arab Emirates (UAE) government to fully implement recommendations made during its third United Nations Universal Periodic Review (UPR).
The Working Group on the UPR held its third review of the UAE's human rights record during its 29th Session held in Geneva between 15 and 26 January 2018. During the review, 97 countries submitted written statements with 232 recommendations and the UAE government made a number of voluntary pledges. The UAE promised to examine 230 of the recommendations and noted two of them related to the ongoing diplomatic crisis with Qatar.
