The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is a human rights mechanism aimed at strengthening the promotion and protection of human rights worldwide.

Rwanda underwent its second review in 2015, and accepted 50 of the recommendations handed down from other UN Human Rights Council. To ensure the implementation of these recommendations, civil society and other stakeholders are called on to assist the government. In this regard, regional civil society organisation LDGL, with financial support from the EU's European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR) has translated the recommendations into Kinyarwanda and French so as to ensure a wider audience are aware of the UPR mechanism, recommendation and results.
