Created in 2003 to accompany the great enlargement of the European Union to Central and Eastern Europe, the Strasbourg Club reaches now beyond the EU borders to promote the Europe of Human Rights and Democracy.
The Strasbourg Club aims at promoting European core values that are democracy, intercultural dialogue, respect for Human rights, including minorities, in local public policies. To this end, the Strasbourg Club works in close cooperation with the Council of Europe and the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities.
Strasbourg club is the network of cities based on the role of a citizen in local or community policy. The goal of the Club is to attach importance to European values such as democracy, cultural dialogue and human rights defense (including the rights of minorities) in local public politics. With this aim the Strasburg Club closely cooperates with the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe. The members of the Strasburg Club are 60 cities of different countries. Yerevan has been a member of the Strasburg Club since 2009.
The representative of Yerevan Municipality participated in the annual conference of SC in 2016 and 2017.
