The Global Campus on Human Rights is developing an initiative on Human Rights Cities in cooperation with the Human Rights Cities Network (HRCN) and the EU Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA). The expertise in human rights within the Global Campus network can be a valuable source to strengthen the international movement towards a greater number of human rights cities.
To support this process, the HRCN and the FRA are co-organising a webinar series on Human Rights Cities for the members of our Global Campus network. During these webinars, the HRCN, FRA and partner universities will exchange information on the process of becoming a human rights city and international developments in this field.
The first webinar, organised by the HRCN on the 12th June, serves as an introduction to human rights cities, while the second webinar, organised by FRA on the 19th June, addresses the role of universities and the FRA framework for human rights cities in Europe.
