Human Rights Cities report


In October, the EU Fundamental Rights Agency launched a report on how to become a human rights city. The report focuses on the foundations, structures and tools that are relevant, with explicit attention for the role of a human rights culture, and the importance of participation. Barbara Oomen, as a board member of the Human Rights Cities Network and Cities of Refuge project leader, was involved in drawing up the framework from the start. She spoke about the relevance of human rights cities at a special session during the 2021 Fundamental Rights Forum, organized by the Geneva Cities Hub.
