Though migration policy and citizenship tend to be competencies of the State and not municipal governments, cities can provide major instruments through which to protect the civil and political rights of immigrant communities and minorities. This workshop provides a space in which to exchange knowledge, strategies and experiences of struggle against institutional racism in various local contexts. A broad range of topics will be addressed with the hopes of developing a common narrative, building international and inter-municipal networks against institutional racism and strengthening cooperation between social movements, legal teams, cultural actors and city governments.

The workshop will be in English with a self organized Spanish translation.
