We are pleased to invite you to the International Conference on Human Rights at the Local and Regional Levels 2023
Human Rights Go Local: What Works
“Governing the city by human rights objectives:
Management concepts and instruments”
8 February 2023
12:00 – 14:00 CET (GMT+1)
The Conference is a high-level gathering whose goal is to present and discuss concrete proposals for implementing the international agenda at the local level using a human-rights-based approach. The event aims to provide local and international officials with cutting-edge recommendations and encouragements on how to effectively embed human rights in local public management practices. The Conference focuses on the outcomes of the previous days' expert Academy. The resulting document, called the Outcome Document, will be presented and discussed as a guideline for local governments.
Notable guests include representatives from UNESCO, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), UN-Habitat, the Council of Europe's Congress of Local and Regional Authorities, the European Union Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA), as well as the Republic of Austria, the Federal Province of Styria, and the City of Graz. The highlight of the event is a panel discussion bringing together members of international organisations with prominent local government representatives from around the world to discuss transformative pathways for human rights in public management. Video messages from mayors all over the world will enrich the discussion.
