On Wednesday 10th November, Ireland was reviewed by the Human Rights Council Working Group as part of Ireland’s third review under the Universal Periodic Review (UPR). During the review, 103 States engaged with Ireland on its human rights performance since its second review in 2016.
The recommendations made by recommending States were adopted on the afternoon of Friday 12th November, along with the publication of the Draft Report.
