The Committee on Social Inclusion, Participatory Democracy and Human Rights of UCLG edited its publication “Social Inclusion and Participatory Democracy. From the conceptual discussion to the local action”.
This editing is the result of a study prepared by the Institut de Govern i Polítiques Publiques (IGOP) of the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) at the request of the Committee on Social Inclusion, Participatory Democracy and Human Rights.
The IGOP questions the relation between participatory democracy and social inclusion both in theory and in practice. Besides, the IGOP provides an in-depth analysis of the multidimensional inclusion – exclusion phenomenon appearing in urban societies and of the various approaches to participatory democracy. Concrete action plans are then suggested to set up engaged local public policies for the recognition of the other and the defense of rights.
The publication follows the graphical line of its previous publications: the Global Charter-Agenda for Human Rights in the City, the European Charter for the Safeguarding of Human Rights in the City, the Inclusive Cities Observatory brochure and “For a world of inclusive cities”.
