Project Description

October 2019

WILPF USA submitted this report ahead of the Universal Periodic Review of the USA. The review was originally scheduled for May 2020 but was postponed to 2–13 November 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The report puts forward analyses and recommendations on the increased military spending to the detriment of investment in economic and social rights; the situation at the USA-Mexico Border; mass incarceration and securitization; the climate crisis; nuclear weapons, arms exports; and the full implementation of Women Peace Security.
