Universal Periodic Review (UPR)
Each country undergoing the process submits a review of their human rights situation. FI, with other NGOs, submits a report in which issues of injustice, possibly not mentioned by the government in question, are tabled for consideration.
Franciscans working in the country provide accurate information on these issues. FI then lobbies other governments to ask questions and make recommendations to the country under review which in turn has to commit to implement these changes withing a certain time frame.
FI then works with the Franciscan in-country to monitor the government's implementation of the recommendations in order to ensure they are fulfilled.
