pdf Graz

By Gregor Fischer and Gerd Oberleitner

Graz became the first European Human Rights City on the 8th of February 2001. Inspired by the local Human Rights Declaration, several local institutions and initiatives were founded over the years to monitor and improve the respect for, protection as well as fulfilment of human rights guarantees in the city. This city report lays out the implications of the said declaration and illustrates the practice derived from it during almost two decades.
