The workshops were delivered for civil society representatives from all over the country, for staff of the National Human Rights Institution and Ombuds Office of Uruguay, and also staff working on the Human Rights Recommendations’ Monitoring system (SIMORE). Using a participatory methodology, participants strengthened their capacity to follow up on the implementation of recommendations made to the country by international human rights mechanisms.

Participants also prepared different actors for the process towards the third cycle of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR), which will consider the human rights situation of Uruguay during the 32° period of session of the Human Rights Council, to be held in January-February 2019.
