Mexico’s report on its fourth participation in the Universal Periodic Review Mechanism is adopted by the Human Rights Council

  • The Government of Mexico has prioritized the rights of people in vulnerable situations with a focus on combating poverty, addressing the structural causes of inequality, discrimination and violence.
  • The Human Rights Council adopted the final report of the fourth review of Mexico

Within the framework of the 56th session of the Human Rights Council (HRC), today the Undersecretary for Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Joel Hernández García, and the Permanent Representative of Mexico in Geneva, Francisca Méndez Escobar, participated, representing the Mexican State, in the adoption of the recommendations arising from the fourth Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Mexico.

During his virtual speech, Undersecretary Joel Hernández highlighted that the UPR was an opportunity to present the progress and challenges of the Mexican State in terms of human rights, and underlined that, during the Administration of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, the rights of people in vulnerable situations have been prioritized with a focus on combating poverty, addressing the structural causes of inequality, discrimination and violence.

The Mexican delegation thanked the 115 States that formulated 318 recommendations, which were analyzed in a responsible and constructive manner through a broad consultation process with 49 competent authorities from the executive, legislative and judicial branches. As a result of these consultation processes, Mexico accepted 304 recommendations, which represents 96% of the total.

At the session, representatives of States and civil society presented their views on the acceptance of the recommendations.

This concludes Mexico’s fourth participation in the UPR, which included the submission of the report in October 2023, an interactive dialogue with 115 States in January 2024, as well as the presentation of the position on the recommendations in June 2024 and, finally, the adoption of the final report today.

The UPR is a mechanism of the HRC in which States Parties to the United Nations Organization report on progress and challenges in fulfilling their international obligations in this area, and other States issue recommendations in an interactive dialogue between peers.
