Details for Toolkit to promote and protect the enjoyment of all Human Rights by LGBT people

Name:Toolkit to promote and protect the enjoyment of all Human Rights by LGBT people

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).
