In 2008 the Norwegian Government took a number of steps to safeguard social diversity and to strengthen efforts to combat discrimination.

The goal is a society characterised by openness, tolerance and inclusion. By means of this action plan the Norwegian Government wishes to place the LGBT perspective in all policy areas and in the ministries involved. Besides that they wish to integrate knowledge concerning the needs and challenges of the LGBT group in the various public services. LGBT persons are entitled to a school without the risk of bullying and violence. Threats of forced marriage must be met with offers of support and counselling. In working life, safety representatives and employers must acquire the necessary knowledge to deal with exclusion and bullying.

SOGI and HR LawDrawing on the Yogyakarta Principles, the Practitioners’ Guide from 2009 has been written to provide judges, lawyers, and activists a detailed understanding of the legal foundations for the protection of people victimized on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity.  

The Practitioners’ Guide offers a comprehensive review of the principles of non-discrimination, equality, and privacy.  It then analyzes the scope and nature of the legal prohibition against some of the most severe violations – torture, deprivation of liberty, extrajudicial and arbitrary executions, and denial of the rights to freedom of expression, association, and assembly.  

Through the Practitioners’ Guide, the hope is to increase awareness of human rights principles that protect people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, as well as to encourage legal advocacy.

The guide can be downloaded in French, Spanish and Nepali from International Commission of Jurists.

The 2012 strategy for Denmark's development cooperation. The strategy has three main objectives:

  • The objective of Denmark’s development cooperation is to combat poverty and promote human rights, democracy, sustainable development, peace and stability in conformity with the United Nations Charter, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and United Nations conventions on human rights.
  • Danish development cooperation shall contribute to advancing Denmark’s interests in a more peaceful, stable and equal world. Denmark’s development policy is thus a central and integral element in Danish foreign policy, where it is recognised that developing countries are not merely affected by development policy initiatives, but also by measures in other policy areas.
  • The objective referred to in section 1(1) is pursued through partnerships with developing countries and within the framework of internationally recognised principles and goals for development cooperation, as well as principles for humanitarian aid.
