The Permanent Committee For Human Rights holds 16th meeting

The Permanent Committee for Human Rights held its 16th meeting, with the attendance of the members of the Committee, relevant UAE entities and the National Human Rights Institution. 

The Committee discussed the progress and results of the working group formed to study the recommendations received by the UAE during its fourth national report review from the 43rd session of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) which was held in May 2023. 

During the meeting, the UAE’s commitment to enhancing its cooperation with United Nations human rights bodies, procedures, and committees, including the Universal Periodic Review, which is considered an important international mechanism for exchanging information and best international practices for human rights was stressed.  

It was noted that the fact that the UAE has embraced the majority of the recommendations it received during the fourth periodic review of human rights underscores the nation's unwavering commitment to advancing its national initiatives in human rights. The Committee further noted that a significant number of the recommendations endorsed by the UAE are currently being put into practice, with a particular focus on strengthening legal frameworks, institutions, and national policies concerning human rights.
