Human Rights Cities PT 1: Why do cities make human rights commitments?

“On Human Rights” is happy to present a two part special on the topic of human rights cities. Human Rights Cities is a growing concept and movement that anchors human rights in cities and local context – in the daily lives of people. But what does this actually mean? To answer this question we sit down with two experts on the topic.

In the first episode of our two part special on human rights cities we talk with RWI director Morten Kjaerum about the past, present and future of human rights cities. How has the human rights city concept come about and developed? What is the human rights cities movement and where it is headed?

Morten Kjaerum is a board member of the Human Rights Cities Network and has written and co-written several publications on human rights cities.
