Universities discuss contributing to the human rights cities initiative

FRA moderated a webinar on 19 June on universities and human rights cities. The Global Campus of Human Rights invited representatives from over 20 universities to take part.

Practice shows the importance of the cooperation between cities and universities at different stages of becoming a human rights city. Universities provide legal expertise and information. They are also key actors in developing a culture of rights in the city.

During the webinar, FRA provided an overview of the state of development of the framework of commitments for human rights cities.

This webinar was part of a series of two webinars hosted by the Global Campus, in cooperation with the human rights cities network.
