The submission by the Alternative ASEAN Network on Burma (ALTSEAN-Burma) and the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) focuses on: Myanmar’s adherence to international human rights instruments; its domestic legislation and the rule of law; the intimidation and targeting of human rights defenders (HRDs); armed conflict and displacement; the rights of ethnic and religious minorities, including Muslim Rohingya; rape and gender-based violence; human rights abuses in prisons and in conflict areas; and the National Human Rights Commission.

This submission analyzes important accepted recommendations that have not been implemented adequately or at all. Out of 190 recommendations made during its Universal Periodic Review (UPR) in 2011, Myanmar accepted 74, rejected 70, and considered 46.
