This meeting will be held at the UCLG headquarters. It counts with the support of Barcelona, Plaine Commune and Madrid. It will be held in connection with the International Conference “Cities for Rights”, organized by the City of Barcelona on December 10th and 11th.

The workshop will aim at sharing a wide range of local experiences derived from more than 20 years of policies for “human rights in the city” in Europe. It will seek to provide a meaningful space for exchanging ideas on relaunching networking on human rights cities within our Committee as well as internationally, as part of the recent UN resolution recognizing the role of local authorities in promoting and protecting of human rights.
