Three main themes were addressed in the report we presented. Firstly, the fight against social determinism and the reproduction of inequalities. Secondly, the need to protect children from violence and ensure their safety. Thirdly, the issue of access to quality education for all children throughout France.
Last Monday, 1 May 2023, the UPR of France took place. For the occasion, a delegation of the French government represented by Mrs Isabelle Lonvis-Rome, Minister in charge of Equality between women and men, Diversity and Equal Opportunities went to Geneva to present the progress of the country and received the numerous recommendations presented by the Member States to improve the implementation of human rights.
It is now up to the French State to officially accept these recommendations before the Human Rights Council in the coming months. We are confident that the State will commit to implementing them and we will monitor their progress between now and the next Universal Periodic Review, in 5 years.
