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.

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.
