The international community has a comprehensive institutional machinery to respond to human rights concerns (i.e., the HRC, the Special Procedure system, the Treaty Body system, the UPR, and OHCHR). It is of great importance for the promotion and protection of human rights that these institutions, mechanisms and processes operate to their fullest potential and successfully fulfil their mandates. URG works to strengthen the capacity of international human rights mechanisms and processes to deliver on-the-ground improvements in human rights.
