Cities increasingly base their local policies on human rights. Human rights cities promise to forge new alliances between urban actors and international organizations, to enable the 'translation' of the abstract language of human rights to the local level, and to develop new practices designed to bring about global urban justice. This book brings together academics and practitioners at the forefront of human rights cities and the 'right to the city' movement to critically discuss their history and also the potential that human rights cities hold for global urban justice.

'Global Urban Justice provides a timely window into the theory and practice of human rights in the city. Although the volume helpfully collects many examples of success, its authors are careful not to generalize or romanticize the experience of local implementation. As a result, the collection offers a new lens through which to understand the issues that arise when efforts are made to take the broad set of rights articulated in the UDHR and UN treaties and turn them into real policies and programs that shape how people live. ... Global Urban Justice should be understood as a clear-eyed call to action, highlighting the potential of human rights, not its inevitability.' Johanna Kalb, Columbia Human Rights Law Review
