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.

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.

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.
