The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is a unique process of peer review of the human rights performance of States. The overall human rights situation of each of United Nations's 193 members is assessed every five years, under the auspices of the Human Rights Council. This review includes information received from civil society. 

These submissions and respective briefings detail developments in the legislation and practice surrounding the death penalty – with a particular for on drug offences – in China and Malaysia since their last review at the UPR (2013), and suggests strategic recommendations for Member States. 

The China-related documents were submitted jointly with the International Network of People who Use Drugs (INPUD), and the Malaysia documents were submitted with Ensemble contre la peine de mort (ECPM), the Anti Death Penalty Asia Network (ADPAN), The Advocates for Human Rights, and the World Coalition Against the Death Penalty (WCADP).
