Oslo konferenceJune 2013, 68 pages

15 and 16 April 2013, South Africa and Norway co-­?chaired an international conference on Human Rights, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in Oslo, Norway. The Conference gathered more than 200 participants from 84 countries of all regions of the world.

In all countries of the world, individuals are subjected to discrimination and violence based on sexual orientation and gender identity. In order to gather information from all regions, the Oslo conference was preceded by regional seminars in Kathmandu, Paris and Brasilia, in addition to several civil society events in the African region.

Drawing upon these regional seminars, the concluding international conference in Oslo identified key challenges and implementation gaps and summed up lessons learnt, best practices and possible solutions to addressing these human rights violations in a more coherent and systematic manner.

GALE school toolkit2011, 98 pages.

GALE Toolkit Working with Schools 1.0. Tools for school consultants, principals, teachers, students and parents to integrate adequate attention of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender topics in curricula and school policies.

Until now, it is very rare to see mainstream organizations focus on LGBT issues in schools. Most initiatives to improve our schools are initiated by LGBT grass roots organizations or professional organizations which are rooted in the LGBT movements. That is why this version of the toolkit focuses in part on suggestions for activist organizations on how to access schools. However, just 'dropping' information and model curricula in schools and hoping school will use them, usually does not work. To make sure the tools for schools are tuned into the needs and possibilities of a school, and of an adequate quality to ensure a significant effect, we need to work with the schools themselves. It is this LGBT & straight collaboration we are focusing with in this toolkit.

The toolkit has five parts:
1. Project implementation tools
2. Tools for managers and authorities
3. Tools for staff
4. Tools for students
5. Tools for parent

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.
