Economic rights are part of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and are expanded in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and and Cultural Rights (1966), later supplemented by environmental rights.

A city, a territory, is not an attractive scenario for coexistence if it does not have access to decent employment, in equitable conditions, access to social security benefits, healthy working conditions, protection against unemployment, decent retirement rights, or the right to unionize.

Cities and territories, in their urban-rural setting, are scenarios of violence generated by economic inequalities and the violation of these rights. They are the stage upon which initiatives can and should be undertaken to carry out initiatives that provide opportunities for improvement.

The social and solidarity economy, public procurement clauses, the promotion of circular economy, local development agencies, financial mechanisms aimed at promoting the SDGs…, a wide agenda of initiatives that can be promoted in the city and the territory to correct economic inequalities and, thus, build coexistence and peace.
