About the call for evidence

As part of the Universal Periodic Review process, we will be drafting a joint civil society shadow report. The report will take into account evidence provided by civil society organisations at eight events held across Great Britain in April and May 2016 as well as evidence submitted following a call for evidence.

The questions we'd like you to answer

1. What human rights issues are of concern to you and your organisation?

(You may want to include information on how the issues came about, when the issues were of concern or whether they are still of concern, and who was affected. You may also want to include information on any obstacles or challenges you and your organisation faced in dealing with these issues.)

2. What steps have been taken since to improve the situation?

3. What do you think the government should be doing on this issue?

(This includes the UK government, the Scottish and Welsh government if relevant, and any other public bodies such as local authorities or the police.)

4. If you could tell the government one thing about human rights, what would it be?

Submitting your own report

In addition to submitting to our call for evidence, your organisation can submit its own report to the UPR process. You can find more information about how to do this on OHCHR's website.
