International Model UN Human Rights Council UPR

  • The International Model UN Human Rights Council UPR (I-Model UN UPR) is the first national competition based on the review format of the UN Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic Review
  • The event aims to provide an opportunity for university students from around the world to study and find solutions to human rights issues in: the Republic of Korea, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, the People’s Republic of China, and Japan
  • Held annually since 2013, the I-Model UN UPR allows both domestic and international university students from across Asia to understand the importance of the UPR process as an international mechanism, and work together to promote human rights cooperation and peace in Asia

Model UN Human Rights Council UPR for High Schools

  • Following the success of the I-Model UN UPR, from 2016 onwards Human Asia has also hosted the Model UN Human Rights Council UPR for High Schools
  • The event provides high school students with the opportunity to learn about human rights issues in East Asia, specifically in: the Republic of Korea, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, the People’s Republic of China, and Japan
  • The event seeks to broaden students’ views on human rights challenges in each country and work together on potential solutions. By replicating the UPR UN human rights mechanism, it aims to create an cross-national basis for human rights cooperation and peace in Asia

Human Rights Schools
