The University of Padova Human Rights Centre 'Antonio Papisca', in the framework of the activities of the International Joint Ph.D. Programme 'Human Rights, Society, and Multi-level Governance', is organising an International Conference on the theme 'Cities, territories and the struggles for human rights: a 2030 perspective'. The Conference will take place on 26th and 27th November 2018.

The Conference aims at shedding some light over the transformations that lay ahead for cities and local communities, taking the 2030 SDG Agenda as the fundamental yardstick to assess progress, and at charting ideas and experiences that support a claim for a stronger political role of sub-state and non-state territory-based entities in the global world in a human rights perspective. 

Invited speakers include: Yvonne Donders (University of Amsterdam); Ivan Koprić (University of Zagreb); Josep Maria Llop (University of Lleida); Francesco Martone ('In Difesa Di' Network); Aysel Madra (Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law); Desirée Campagna (University of Padova); Frédérique Hanotier (Human Rights Cities Network).

The Conference is organised in collaboration with: UNESCO Chair 'Human Rights Democracy and Peace', University of Padova; Law and Development Research Group, University of Antwerp; Human Rights Consortium, School of Advanced Studies, University of London; School of Global Studies, University of Gothenburg; European Training and Research Centre for Human Rights and Democracy and UNESCO Chair in Human Rights and Security, University of Graz; South Africa Labour and Development Research Unit (SALDRU), University of Cape Town. Each of these institutes cooperate in the organisation and management of one of the conference's research panels.

It is organised with the sponsorship of the University of Padova and of the Department of Political Science, Law and International Studies, and in cooperation with the Bachelor Degree Programme in "Political Science, International Relations, Human Rights" and the Master's Degree Programme in "Human Rights and Multi-level Governance".
