Call for a European Coalition of Cities against Racism

Ten-Point Plan of Action: Commitments for Fighting Racism in Cities

The Coalition of Cities against Racism is an initiative launched by UNESCO in 2004 to establish a network of cities interested in sharing experiences to improve their policies to fight racism, discrimination and xenophobia.

The ultimate objective is to involve the interested cities in a common struggle against racism through an international Coalition. In order to take into account the specificities and priorities of each region of the world, regional Coalitions have been created with their own programme of action.

The European Coalition of Cities against Racism was the first regional network to be set up for the creation of an International Coalition of Cities.

Its Ten-Point Plan of Action, elaborated in close cooperation with academic experts, cities and representatives of civil society was adopted at the launching conference of the European Coalition.

Since its inception in December 2004, approximately 100 municipalities from 20 countries of Europe have joined the initiative.
