Meeting of UNESCO Chairs in human rights, urban inclusion and migration

-

A Meeting of UNESCO Chairs in human rights, urban inclusion and migration will take place at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris on 21 and 22 June 2017.

The objectives of the Meeting will be to:

1) Contribute to launching the process of the review of UNESCO’s Human Rights Strategy and the Integrated Strategy to Combat Racism, Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance, both adopted in 2003, bearing in mind the priorities of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the New Urban Agenda; and

2) Develop jointly a comprehensive roadmap for collaboration with Chairs and Institutes with emphasis on the promotion of human rights, urban inclusion and migration.

Participants will comprise representatives of UNESCO Chairs and Institutes, experts, as well as representatives from civil society. Taking into account the importance of local action, local authorities from the International Coalition of Inclusive and Sustainable Cities − ICCAR from all regions are invited to participate as well. The participation of all UNESCO programme Sectors throughout the process is crucial to target debates and help generate recommendations on intersectoral actions and initiatives.

Partnering with UNESCO Chairs in human rights, urban inclusion and migration will contribute to better position UNESCO for the promotion of human rights and the attainment of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
