Under the second cycle of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) mechanism, the UN Human Rights Council Working Group on the UPR will be undertaking a review of Israel during its 15th session in January 2013.
In a submission to the Working Group on the UPR, the ICJ has focused on the discrete issues of:
- Israel’s obligations under international humanitarian law and international human rights law;
- settlements and the wall of separation;
- administrative and arbitrary detention of prisoners and their unlawful treatment; and
- Israel’s party status to international human rights instruments and its cooperation with the UN treaty bodies and the Council’s Special Procedures.
