Urbanization and human rights

By A. Mihr


Urban governance on the basis of human rights can help to set up problem solving\ud mechanisms to guarantee social peace, economic growth and political participation.If states both integrate more in international or regional human rights regime and give more autonomy to urban governments and local authorities, many of these issues of urbanization can be solved. Where people organize themselves on local levels and in neighborhood initiatives,\ud new forms of governance mechanisms evolve. These mechanisms include a wide range of\ud human rights, principles and standards such as equal participation, ethnic and religious\ud tolerance, gender equity, health and education initiatives, access to food supplies, property rights, access to information through the internet and even sexual and reproductive rights. The ability to freely communicate and participate will lead to more transparency, accountability,\ud adaptiveness, integration and equity
