Annual Review 2011
Find information and download the Annual Review of the Human Rights Situation of LGBTI People in Europe 2011 here.
This annual publication documents legislative, political and social developments relevant to LGBTI people in each European country, as well as at international (United Nations) and European level (Council of Europe, EU and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe). The aim is to complement the global documentation of the human rights situation from an LGBTI perspective on a yearly basis.
While the 2011 edition of the Annual Review covers various cases of violence, hatred and discrimination against LGBTI people (at times perpetrated at the hands of the State), the scope of the document is not that of naming and shaming, or pointing fingers at specific countries. This publication should instead serve as a tool for the exchange of best practices and policies, and as an open invitation for enhanced cooperation between governments and LGBTI civil society.
