Guidelines on the transposition of the Asylum Qualification Directive: protecting LGBTI asylum seekers, 2012

In 2011, the European Union adopted the recast Qualification Directive (2011/95/EU) setting out rules governing minimum standards on conditions under which international protection is granted as part of the Common European Asylum System (CEAS). The purpose of these guidelines, which update the previous version published by ILGA-Europe in 2005 after the adoption of the first Qualification Directive, is to identify the relevant parts of the Directive for applicants for international protection persecuted because of their being lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or intersex. This publication will help national policy makers and NGOs to work towards a full implementation of EU law in this area.

Human Rights and Gender Identity: Best Practice Catalogue, December 2011

Human Rights and Gender Identity: Best Practice Catalogue is a civil society follow-up to the pioneering work of the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights, Thomas Hammarberg, and his 2009 Issue Paper entitled Human Rights and Gender Identity. In it, the Commissioner explored the human rights situation of trans people in depth, clearly showing that they remain one of the most vulnerable and discriminated communities due to inadequate legislation and social marginalisation. Through a set of twelve recommendations, the Commissioner called on Council of Europe Member States to respect the human rights of trans people and put in place concrete measures for the social inclusion and emancipation of trans people.
