Webinar "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.
