Peru presented its voluntary pledges for election for the term 2018-2020 on 24 August 2017. In the document, Peru presented, inter alia, the following international pledges: Continuing to participate constructively in the UPR and taking due account of recommendations derived from the mechanism; Supporting the strengthening of Special Procedures of the Council and encouraging more States to extend Standing Invitations; Continuing to present or sponsor resolutions it has supported; Continuing to support OHCHR; Strengthening cooperation with the Treaty Bodies, including submitting periodic reports in a timely manner and following up on implementation; Promoting cooperation and exchange of information between the UN human rights system and regional systems; Fostering international cooperation among States to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
An analysis of steps taken by Peru in fulfilment of its international pledges shows that it has only participated in around 20% of other States’ reviews during the UPR second and third cycles and has not submitted mid-term reports. Regarding the Special Procedures, Peru maintains a Standing Invitation for mandate-holders to visit and has facilitated 73% of visit requests, but has so far only responded to 47% of the communications received. Peru has ratified all the core human rights conventions and 6 individual communications procedures (it is yet to ratify the CED and CESCR). It has three overdue periodic reports (CAT, CERD, and CRC), although all for less than a year. Peru indeed continued to support the initiatives it pledged to, such as equal participation, firearms, and extreme poverty.
