7th Conferenceof the European Charter for The Safeguarding of Human Rights in the City in Bosnia

After the conferences in Barcelona (1998), Saint-Denis (2000), Venice (2002), Nuremburg (2004), Lyon (2006), and Geneva (2008), the Bosnian city of Tuzla will host the 7th Conference of the European Charter for the Safeguarding of Human Rights in the City. On this occasion, the event is of twofold importance. First, because it will be celebrating 10 years of history of the Charter (Saint-Denis 2000) and second, because it will be the first time that the meeting will be held in a city in Eastern Europe.In a context of global crisis, the signatory cities to the European Charter will therefore meet from 7 to 9 October 2010 to deal with questions that are now vital, such as the need to promote peace and tolerance as a condition for overcoming any crisis or possible conflict, the importance of providing high quality public services and the urgent need to act in order to protect the environment.  The city of Tuzla (with the essential support of the cities of Barcelona, Bobigny, Donostia/San Sebastián, Geneva, Ljubljana, Nantes and Saint-Denis) calls on the European authorities to support this process, which is taking place within the CSIPD.
