The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is a UN mechanism that allows for the human rights of every country in the world to be reviewed.
The Rwandan genocide of 1994 is well documented. During what has been described as “one of the most intensive killing campaigns in human history”, over 2 million people fled the country to neighbouring states.
