Marking the Human Rights Day on December 10, the Program on Human Rights and the Global Economy (PHRGE) highlights Human Rights Cities with an informative talk by Morten Kjaerum, Director of the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law.
He will talk about how the Human Rights Cities movement is growing worldwide, particularly in Asia and Europe, and what these “small places, close to home” mean for both global and domestic initiatives to recognize and implement human rights norms.

Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home — so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. […] Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.”
