Key objectives of the measure:

The Danish City of Refuge Initiative should be mentioned. In 2008 the necessary Danish legislation was ready enabling cities in Denmark to offer a refuge for authors who are persecuted in their respective countries. The initiatives has now been implemented in four cities in Denmark which now hold the title of "city of refuge" which have become part of the International Cities of Refuge Network (ICORN) dedicated to the value of freedom of expression.
