Asylum Country-by-Country

This country-by-country section is a legal tool and a practical resource on LGBTI asylum in Europe. It also provides information on the situation of LGBTI people in non-European countries of origin.

We hope this section will be useful for our member organisations and other groups working on LGBTI asylum issues, and we are as always open for updates and suggestions for improvement.
