Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
…we are leaving aside some potent and critical tools. The use of human rights instruments has not been prominent, either as guiding principles for sustainable urban development, as tools for integrating the three “dimensions” of sustainable development — the social, economic and environmental aspects — or for resolving the conflicting rights and interests that inevitably arise. Indeed, at many stages these instruments appear to have been overlooked entirely.
On the one hand, then, Habitat III and its outcome strategy, the New Urban Agenda, will need to provide a clear basis for action for addressing human rights violations in urban areas. On the other, it will also be important for this agenda to ensure that all citizens, especially marginalized young people, are able to enjoy their rights, to influence governance and decision-making, and to improve their lives and cities.
