"This book examines the engagement of African states with the United Nations Human Rights Council's Universal Periodic Review Mechanism (UPR). This system is known for its pacific and non-confrontational approach to monitoring state human rights implementation. Coming at the end of the first two cycles of the UPR, the work offers a detailed analysis into the effectiveness of African states' engagement and its potential impact. It develops a framework which comprehensively evaluates aspects of states' UPR engagement such as the pre-review national consultation process and implementation of UPR recommendations which, until recently, have received little attention. The book considers the potential for acculturation in engagement with the UPR and unpacks the impact of regionalism, cultural relativism, rights ritualism and civil society. The work provides a useful guide for policymakers and international human rights law practitioners as well as a valuable resource for international legal and international relations academics and researchers"-- Provided by publisher.
