Submission to the United Nations Universal Periodic Review of Myanmar


The Burma/Myanmar UPR Forum is a coalition of 29 civil society organizations working to improve the human rights in Myanmar. Since its formation in 2010, the Forum has collaboratively submitted joint stakeholder reports for Myanmar’s 1st and 2nd UPR cycles respectively. Forum monitors human rights situation on the ground in the hopes that our work will lead to accountability.

During the second cycle, Myanmar received 281 recommendations, among which 166 were “accepted” and 15 were “noted.” Very little positive changes have taken place since Myanmar’s last review and its human rights record remains mired.
