A multidimensional approach to urban inequalities: thoughts and aspirations


As part of the "Neighbourhoods, inequality and youth: putting multidimensional inequalities on the local political agenda in countries in transition" project, implemented through a partnership between Oxfam (Brazil, Mexico, Spain), the European Union, Barcelona City Council, Metropolis and the Barcelona Centre for International Affairs (CIDOB), a webinar was organized to showcase its results.

The project consisted in identifying public policies for reducing inequalities in urban settings from a multidimensional, interdisciplinary and intersectional perspective.





Este evento compartió y difundió experiencias prometedoras en la medición y análisis de las desigualdades en entornos urbanos, especialmente en grandes ciudades y áreas metropolitanas como Ciudad de México, Brasilia, São Paulo y Barcelona, junto con un comentario de Metropolis

También promovió el uso de estas metodologías y compartir las lecciones aprendidas de estas experiencias desde la perspectiva tanto de las organizaciones de la sociedad civil como de los municipios.
