About the Webinar Series
Implementing human rights is a common obligation of all levels of government. Many rights cannot be realised without active engagement in and by cities. Around these insights, new political and social dynamic has emerged in recent years.
We explore more effective ways to promote and protect human rights at the local level by sharing knowledge: about the manifold links between human rights and cities, about the gains that human rights-based action brings to city life and about the great potential of the human rights city approach.
