"Culture of Human Rights" within the Framework of Graz Culture Capital 2003


Project summary:

In order to position the Human Rights City Graz as a city of Human Rights Culture, the project “Culture of Human Rights” contributed to the essential debate on human rights during the year 2003. So the project examined aspects of non-discrimination and integration, especially with regards to migrants, and of the importance of the local level for the realization of human rights and the relevance of human rights education for this process. In particular, the symposium on “Human Rights at the Local Level” at the University of Graz in November 2003 led to extended researches. A survey among the signatory cities of the “European Charta for the Safeguarding of Human Rights in the City” has been undertaken as well as the translation of the Charta into German. The symposium itself faced broad international attendance.
