STORY
At least 27 representatives from civil society organizations and
human rights activists in Somalia concluded a two-day consultative
workshop in Mogadishu on Tuesday, to review the human rights
situation in Somalia and draft a report for the United Nations Human
Rights Council in Geneva, Switzerland

Somali civil society groups will submit their Universal Periodic


Review (UPR) to the Council in June this year while the Federal
Government will make their own submission in October 2015.
The UPR process periodically assesses the human rights situation in
the 193 UN member states. During the review process, the State
parties are mandated to present human rights reports for review
before the UN Human Rights Council.

human rights situation in early 2016. The Council is responsible for
the global promotion and protection of human rights.

six thematic areas namely; women and childrens rights, rights of
persons with disabilities, media rights and freedom of expression,

development rights.

of the consultative process, the civil society and human rights
activists will put together a report that will be submitted to the UN

consultation; but the consultation process is a Somali-led initiative
by the Somali civil society organizations.

periodic review as important. She noted that the organizations play
