Local Level


At the local level the ETC closely cooperates with the city of Graz and the mayor's office regarding the implementation of the Human Rights City process and the ECCaR obligations. The Human Rights Council of the City of Graz has its administrative office situated at the ETC. In this framework the ETC coordinates and writes the annual Human Rights Report of the City of Graz. A successful educational project is the human rights platform Kenne deine Rechte (Know your Rights), made by the youth for the youth and on-line since 2010.

Expanding and sharing the expertise on implementing human rights at the local level the ETC has started to work with UNESCO to launch the project Towards Inclusive and Sustainable Cities in the Arab Region (TISCA) and to foster the re-launch of the Arab Coalition of Cities against Racism (ACCAR) and signed a Memorandum of Understanding to cooperate with the African Local Government Academy (ALGA), to develop, among other projects, a human rights curriculum for the academy.
