The year 2016 marks the mid-point of China’s second cycle of the UPR, and provides a moment to reflect on the recommendations made and responses received during China’s October 2013 review. It is also an opportunity to consider the role of civil society in pressing for and assisting with the implementation of accepted recommendations throughout the UPR cycle, and the value of transparent benchmarks of progress and areas for continued effort.
