Estonia warmly welcomes the delegation of Chile to its third UPR.
Estonia notes positively the progress made since the 28th session of the UPR, including the ratification of several international instruments.
We welcome the ratification of the Kampala amendments to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court and the establishment of the Child Rights Ombudsman as, among others, recommended by Estonia.
We recognize positive steps taken in the field of women`s rights, including passing legislation and the creation of the Ministry of Women’s Affairs and Gender Equity.

- Take further steps to ensure the full enjoyment of all human rights by women and girls, including regarding sexual and reproductive health and rights and to accelerate the approval of the bill on the right of women to a life free of violence.
- Take further steps to ensure the rights of indigenous peoples, prevent and address their social and political exclusion and structural social inequalities and to adopt measures to officially recognize land tenure and ownership of indigenous women.
- Prevent and ensure investigations of the excessive use of force in police interventions, paying particular attention to the interactions with children and adolescents.
- Take further steps in preventing the human rights violations of children in state
We wish you a successful review.
