The 2016 report by ARC International, International Bar Association’s Human Rights Institute, and ILGA  provides an overview on how the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) has shaped the protection of the rights of LGBTI persons to date. It also addresses the challenges and the ways to try and turn the UPR into a greater mechanism to protect the rights of LGBTI persons on the ground. The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is a unique process which involves a periodic review of the human rights records of all 193 UN Member States. The UPR is a significant innovation of the Human Rights Council which is based on equal treatment for all countries. It provides an opportunity for all States to declare what actions they have taken to improve the human rights situations in their countries and to overcome challenges to the enjoyment of human rights. The UPR also includes a sharing of best human rights practices around the globe.

An operational set of tools for staff in the EU Headquarters, EU Member States’ capitals, EU Delegations, Representations and Embassies to be used in contacts with third countries, as well as with international and civil society organisations, in order to promote and protect the human rights enjoyed by LGBT people within its external action.

The toolkit (2011) seeks to enable the EU to proactively react to cases of human rights violations of LGBT people and to structural causes behind these violations. The document lists the priority areas of action: 1) Decriminalisation, 2) Equality and Non-Discrimination, 3) Support and Protection for Human Rights Defenders. Besides that the Headquarters and EU Missions in partner countries have various tools and actions at their disposal, also using existing instruments and guidelines (see page 8-13). Annex 2 is also interesting as it includes elements for analysis/checklist of a LGBT human rights situation (page 17-22).

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.

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.
