The 3rd cycle of the Universal Period Review (UPR) is scheduled to begin in Geneva – April/May 2017. South Africa’s human rights record will be reviewed during the cycle. It is expected that the review will cover both developments and gaps in human in South Africa. To this end, SALC and its partners raised many concerns relating to the country human rights situation in early April when the UPR pre-session took place. Some examples of the concerns raised include South Africa’s position in relation to the International Criminal Court (ICC), the country’s approach to SADC Tribunal and the recurrence of xenophobia.
