"Governing the City by Human Rights Objectives: Embedding Human Rights in Public Management Instruments"

edited by Gerd Oberleitner and Klaus Starl

The publication series “Human Rights Go Local” is jointly edited by the International Centre for the Promotion of Human Rights at the Local and Regional Levels under the auspices of UNESCO and the UNESCO Chair in Human Rights and Human Security at the University of Graz. The series is published by HRGL Publications. The series allows established researchers, new voices, and practitioners to contribute to the debate on the interlinkages between human rights and global policy frameworks, such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda. In addition, the publication series showcases how these very interlinkages can guide us towards creating inclusive, resilient, safe, and sustainable urban spaces and regions.

This volume of the HRGL publication series aims to answer the following questions: Which management concepts and tools are currently being implemented at the local level worldwide that help to systematically embed a human rights-based outcome orientation? What do IGOs have to offer in this respect? Which guidelines and manuals on applying outcome orientation in local level public management are already available? Can they be adapted to human rights or are they generally open to human rights? What is the benefit of applying human rights-based outcome orientation to guide public management and budgeting in local level governance?
