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

norge guidelines2014, 8 pages

Norway plays an active role as an advocate for the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transpersons – LGBT - both in the UN Human Rights Council, the UN General Assembly and bilaterally. The starting point for Norway’s efforts is that human rights apply to everyone, regardless of their sex, social and ethnic background, religion or sexual orientation.

In many countries, securing the rights of LGBT people is a sensitive issue. We have therefore developed brief guidelines for efforts by Norwegian embassies to promote the rights of LGBT people.

The guidelines have been developed in cooperation with Norwegian embassies in Nicaragua, Nepal, Kenya and Uganda.

The guidelines include the following recommendations:

  • Embassies should be aware of the Norwegian policy on LGBTs
  • Human rights efforts must extend to issues relating to LGBT people
  • Embassies should gain an overview of the situation for LGBTs
  • Embassies should raise the general issue of LGBT rights in their talks with authorities
  • Events of arrests or abuse of LGBT people should be monitored and reported

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.

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.
