    Abstract

    The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) process of the UN Human Rights Council has issued thousands of recommendations to States undergoing the review process. An increasing number of them concern legal subjects and this article explores recommendations in relation to reservations to human right treaties. Although the UPR process was designed to be distinct to treaty bodies UPR recommendations are increasingly overlapping with their work. The UPR process is showing signs of developing its own approach to reservations which could help address the problem of impermissible recommendations to human rights treaties.
