Inclusive Local Citizenship: Fostering the Right to the City for All

This report analyses how to re-think the idea of citizenship from an urban perspective offers the opportunity to put forward alternative geographies and approaches to citizenship based on human rights principles, which entails broader processes of inclusion. Inclusion is to be understood here as strengthening the sense of belonging and full participation in the city life -either socially, politically, culturally, economically or in terms of public space usage. In that sense, local inclusive citizenship is a way to ensure the Right to the City and, accordingly, to reclaim the city as a co-created and collective space for -and by- its inhabitants, regardless of their background, social or legal status.
