Cities and municipalities are the public authorities closest to their citizens. Therefore, it is crucial to implement human rights at the local level to ensure that no one is left behind. What are concrete ways for local governments and stakeholders to strengthen their commitment to human rights? To answer this question, we want to draw together efforts from across the world aiming at fostering commitments to human rights at the local level.
We want to hear from human rights professionals and practitioners striving to make human rights a reality at the local level. We encourage cities, city networks, international organisations, as well as intermediaries from think tanks, academia, civil society, and national/regional organisations to apply. Further, we are eager to welcome members of the next generation who are interested in pursuing a career in human rights.
The selection of participants is based on:
- Quality and relevance of motivation statement
