HIC Action Research: Lessons of Civil Society Movement Strategies for Influencing Policy Towards Adherence to Human Rights and the Right to the City’
Date: 27 May, 2021
The HIC General Secretariat Action Research (AR) entitled ‘A Framework for Understanding The Nature, Efficacy & Lessons of Civil Society Movement Strategies for Influencing Policy Towards Adherence to Human Rights and the Right to the City’ highlights a small part of the tremendous and ongoing effort of civil society actors to influence public policies in favor of the implementation of human rights related to habitat and the right to the city.
The publication is the result of a research, divided into three regional components: Africa, Europe and Latin America, that gathers the experiences from civil society and grassroots organizations, in partnership with local governments and Academic and Training Institutions in the defense, promotion and realization of human rights related to habitat.
The resulting report highlights the notable synergies between civil society and local governments as well as Academic and Training Institutions, partnerships that will hopefully be an inspiration to replicate strategies and enhance collaborative work to influence local, regional, or global charters, policies, action plans, programmes and development in line with the right to the city and the social production of habitat principles.
