Promises Made, Promises Broken
Nine persecuted Iranians powerfully tell their stories of repression, harassment, detainment and torture in their own words. While these activists, bloggers, lawyers and students put a face to Iran’s human rights abuses, their stories are shared by many Iranians whose rights are violated every day.
Despite the fact that Iran accepted 126 recommendations from UN Human Rights Council member countries at its last UPR in 2010, it has not honored the majority of these commitments, and violations continue to occur.
An analysis of Iran’s UPR commitments is available at http://ImpactIran.org and http://UPRIran.org.
