The United States Presents its Universal Periodic Review National Report


Office of the Spokesperson

Today, the United States participated in the Human Rights Council’s 36th session of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) Working Group. During the session, the U.S. delegation presented the U.S. national report on our domestic human rights record and responded to questions from UN Members. The UPR was created by the UN General Assembly, and all UN member states participate in the process outlined in UN resolution 60/251.


The 2020 delegation was led by Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor Assistant Secretary Robert A. Destro; Ambassador Andrew Bremberg, Permanent Representative of the United States to the United Nations in Geneva; and Acting Legal Adviser Marik String. The U.S. interagency delegation included representatives from the Departments of Defense, Justice, Labor, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, and Homeland Security, as well as the Attorney General for the State of Utah.


The United States’ written report is available online at https://www.ohchr.org/EN/HRBodies/UPR/Pages/USindex.aspx.
