Indonesia: UPR Joint Press Statement

The state is yet to position human rights as a priority agenda.

The human rights situation in Indonesia is to be subject to review before the UN Human Rights Council on May 3, 2017 through the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) mechanism. UPR is an inter-state periodic peer review human rights mechanism and in May 2017 it will be Indonesia’s third cycle, with the first in 2008 and the second in 2012.
