The UPR is a unique process that involves a periodic review of the human rights records of all 193 UN Member States. Since its first meeting was held in April 2008, all 193 UN member States have been reviewed twice within the first and second UPR cycles. During the third UPR cycle, States are again expected to spell out steps they have taken to implement recommendations posed during their previous reviews and highlight recent human rights developments in the country.
The Danish delegation will be led by: Mr. Jeppe Kofod, Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr. Jenis Av Rana, Minister of Foreign Affairs (Faroe Islands), and Ms. Tove Sovndahl, Senior Advisor, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Energy (Greenland).
The three country representatives serving as rapporteurs (“troika”) for the review of Denmark are Mauritania, India and France.
