The instructor Mr. Kamal Al-mashriqi kindly presented a definition of the overall periodic report, which is one of the UN non-contractual mechanisms that consists of three documents:

- The national report: it is the report that the State of Iraq should hand over, the first item which is the methodology of the report, which includes the seriousness of the Iraqi government to deal with civil society organizations, and whether it held any meetings with organizations for the writing of the report.

- Synthesis Report of the of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, which receives information from the United Nations contractual mechanisms.

- Stakeholder Statement (Stakeholder Summary), which includes statements from organizations, networks, parties, defenders and trade unions.

He also pointed out that the next report is the third report, which depends mainly on the second report, so it is necessary to see the previous recommendations, and monitor the commitment of the Iraqi government to implement them and whether there are national plans to achieve these recommendations and to work on a recommendation must be based on public policies, Creating legislation, amending legislation, abolishing public policies in the state.

He also explained that the reports are submitted every four and a half years.

The Second Session: during which it was focused on the life cycle of the overall periodic review mechanism for human rights, the principles of alliances work, and the role of civil society within the review mechanism.

Also, the instructor explained that civil society organizations should take their role in promoting the idea of ​​ “UPR” to enhance their role in monitoring and inform the government of its work.

According to this idea, our colleague “Yusouf Ibrahim” kindly presented a proposal, namely, Baghdad Declaration for Human Rights Defenders, by drafting a statement with Hashtag, to be launched at the end of the second day of the workshop.

In the presence of the media, the Declaration calls upon the representatives of the organizations participating in the workshop to respect the human rights arising from the international legislations and standards and to affirm the implementation of the Human Rights Council resolution on defenders against violations and harassment affecting their rights and freedoms and their families.

And for their voluntary humanitarian service. The declaration also included a group of claims to the protection of human rights defenders.

The third session dealt with the guidelines for the preparation of the overall Periodic Review report, the skills for analyzing recommendations and the building of human rights indicators. Then the fourth session began, which was about the working group on the statements.

At the end of the first day of the workshop, statements were prepared according to the guidelines, analysis and building indicators, with an evening duty to work on ending the drafting of statements.
