Ever heard of a Human Rights City? They’re dotted around Europe and there’s even more across the world. But one is right here in the UK.

York became the UK’s first Human Rights City in April 2017. That means it seeks to use human rights as the backbone for its policies and rules. We went to York to find out a little more about what that means for the city, and how other places across the UK might follow in York’s footsteps.
