Lobby in Geneva for UPR Iran and Kazakhstan
On Monday, October 6th, and Wednesday, October 8th, Lawyers for Lawyers attended ’pre-sessions’ organized by the NGO ‘UPR-Info’. During these sessions NGOs have the opportunity to lobby country delegations in Geneva, to take over the recommendations of UPR submissions previously submitted by NGOs. Lawyers for Lawyers has filed submissions for Kazakhstan and Iran, in which recommendations were made to improve the situation of lawyers in those countries and to enable them to exercise their profession in freedom.
Attending the sessions yielded very satisfactory results; Lawyers for Lawyers was able to speak to many interested delegations and was thus able to share a lot of information about lawyers in Kazakhstan and Iran.
