On March 20, 2014, the United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC) officially adopted the Report of the Working Group on the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) for China’s second UPR, a comprehensive evaluation of its human rights obligations under the UN system. As the official record of China’s review and its commitments, the report documents the questions, comments, recommendations, and China’s statements made during the interactive dialogue.
Of the 252 recommendations made by HRC member and observer States, China accepted 204 and rejected 48. And of the 204 accepted recommendations, China stated that 31 have already been implemented, and eight are being implemented.
HRIC has organized the 252 recommendations into four summary charts, by the outcome category:
Chart 1: Accepted Recommendations
Chart 2: Accepted and Already Implemented Recommendations
Chart 3: Accepted and Being Implemented Recommendations
Chart 4: Not Accepted Recommendations
The charts group the recommendations by topic, and include the text of the recommendations as advanced by the member states and the names of the member states. Charts 2, 3, 4 also include China’s comments, as stated in the Addendum to the Report of the Working Group, Views on conclusions and/or recommendations, voluntary commitments and replies presented by the State under review.
