UCLG Policy Council on the Right to the City and Inclusive Territories

The Policy Council on the Right to the City is a local government consultation mechanism held in the framework of UCLG. It aims at fostering UCLG policy debates and agendas on issues such as gender, housing, migration, participatory democracy and social and economic rights, as well as regarding human rights.
