How to integrate human rights into the governance and management of municipalities and regions? This has been a central question in a project organised between 2015 and 2016 by The Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (SALAR), involving 14 municipalities and counties (regions) in Sweden.
This is a shortened version of the project report in which examples of how the participating municipalities and regions have worked with integration of human rights into governance and management are presented.
The participating municipalities and regions have inter alia developed policies and action plans for the implementation of human rights, worked with human rights mainstreaming, education, and the integration of human rights in financial control.
