Happy New Year 2023! We at the International Centre for the Promotion of Human Rights at the Local and Regional Levels look forward to achieving many milestones in human rights and local governance in the coming year. Before we return to work, we would like to announce two things:
We are pleased to present the fourth volume of the “Human Rights Go Local” publication series! This volume is called “Governing the City by Human Rights Objectives: Embedding Human Rights in Public Management Instruments”. It focuses on the benefits of applying a human rights lens to public management at the local level, and it provides a toolkit as well as global examples of how to do so, particularly through the use of outcome orientation. The publication is available for purchase here.
In this vein, we are also excited to inform you that you can now register to attend our virtual Conference “Human Rights Go Local”, which will take place on 8 February from 12:00 to 14:00 CET. The Conference marks the ceremonial closing of the week-long Academy on “Governing the City by Human Rights Objectives” and showcases the synthesised expertise of practitioners from around the world. An exciting panel discussion brings together mayors and international organisation representatives to discuss transformational pathways for local public management. Register here!
This year promises to be an exciting one for us at the Centre and Chair, and we look forward to many exciting projects ahead. Thank you for your ongoing support!
