European Coalition of Cities Against Racism (ECCAR)
The European Coalition of Cities against Racism was launched in Nuremberg (Germany) in December 2004 on the occasion of the 4th European Conference of Cities for Human Rights. Approximately 100 municipalities from 20 countries of Europe have joined this initiative since its inception. The City of Potsdam acts as its Administrative Secretariat.
Its objective has been to establish a network of cities committed to sharing experiences in order to improve their policies to fight racism and all forms of discrimination.
