Abstract

The five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council (indeed all UN member states) have completed the first cycle of the United Nations Human Rights Council's universal periodic review of their compliance with human rights. While they were treated the same from a procedural point of view, this new mechanism represented a unique opportunity for other UN member states to examine the permanent five's human rights records, commenting thereon. Thus the interactive dialogue and resulting recommendations presented a unique opportunity to see themselves as others see them. Will they have liked what they saw?
