Americans for Democracy & Human Rights in Bahrain (ADHRB) in cooperation with CIVICUS: World Alliance for Citizen Participation and European Saudi Organization for Human Rights (ESOHR) put forth a Joint Submission for Saudi Arabia’s 3rd Universal Periodic Review. In this document, CIVICUS, ESOHR, and ADHRB examine the Government of Saudi Arabia’s compliance with its international human rights obligations to create and maintain a safe and enabling environment for civil society. In particular, the submission examines Saudi Arabia’s fulfillment of recommendations concerning the rights to the freedoms of association, peaceful assembly and expression, and unwarranted restrictions on human rights defenders since its previous Universal Periodic Review (UPR) examination in October 2013.
