The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is a unique process which involves the review of the human rights record of all 192 UN Member States once every four years. It was created through the UN General Assembly in 2006. In this review process the UN pays special attention to the information submitted by non-governmental organizations.
The Hungarian Helsinki Committee aims to assist the UN to better assess Hungary’s human rights performance by contributing to three alternative reports, within the framework of the upcoming periodic review. In advance of the UPR Review, the HHC briefed Budapest-based embassies on Hungary’s human rights performance falling under its mandate.

The issues are elaborated on in the following Fact Sheets:

1. The new Constitution of Hungary

2. Removal of checks and balances from the constitutional framework

3. Criminal policy and issues related to detention

4. Rights violations by officials

5. Right to fair trial

6. Situation of the Roma minority with regard to law enforcement

7. Asylum seekers and refugees

8. Alien policing detention

9. Comments of the National Report
