Justice Centre Hong Kong is helping to facilitate civil society advocacy for the Third Cycle United Nations Universal Periodic Review (UPR) for China, as it relates to Hong Kong.
The UPR is a State-driven process, under the auspices of the Human Rights Council, which provides the opportunity for each State to declare what actions they have taken to improve the human rights situations in their countries and to fulfil their human rights obligations.
The Hong Kong UPR Coalition (the Coalition) was founded in 2017 to engage the UPR process. The Coalition is guided by a Steering Committee, which includes; Civil Human Rights Front (民間人權陣線), Disabilities CV (殘疾資歷生活館), Hong Kong Watch, Justice Centre Hong Kong, Les Corner Empowerment Association (女角平權協作組), PEN Hong Kong (香港筆會), Pink Alliance (粉紅同盟), Planet Ally and The Hong Kong Society for Asylum-Seekers and Refugees (香港尋求庇護者及難民協會).
