WORLD MAYOR 2016
The Shortlist
The shortlist for the 2016 World Mayor Prize, which was released on 20 October, includes 15 mayors who, together with their communities, have made exceptional efforts to welcome refugees and integrate migrants. Some mayors represent cities that have suffered immeasurable damage during the current conflict in the Middle East. Often mayors have, even in the face of strong opposition, steadfastly defended the rights of all people to be treated with compassion and be offered safety. They have provided emergency assistance to displaced men, women and children and initiated longterm programmes to integrate newcomers into civic society.  Many mayors have also repeatedly stressed the contributions immigrants have made to their cities.

SHORTLISTED MAYORS:
From North America ||| From Europe ||| From the Middle East |||
