Individual Documents

Title: Myanmar-UPR: Compilation prepared by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights
Date of publication: 15 November 2010
Description/subject: Human Rights Council Working Group on the Universal Periodic Review Tenth session Geneva, 24 January – 4 February 2011..... "The present report is a compilation of the information contained in the reports of treaty bodies, special procedures, including observations and comments by the State concerned, and other relevant official United Nations documents. It does not contain any opinions, views or suggestions on the part of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), other than those contained in public reports issued by OHCHR. It follows the structure of the general guidelines adopted by the Human Rights Council. Information included herein has been systematically referenced in endnotes. The report has been prepared taking into consideration the four-year periodicity of the first cycle of the review. In the absence of recent information, the latest available reports and documents have been taken into consideration, unless they are outdated. Since this report only compiles information contained in official United Nations documents, lack of information or focus on specific issues may be due to non-ratification of a treaty and/or to a low level of interaction or cooperation with international human rights mechanisms".... At present, only the Arabic, English and French versions are available.
