CANCELLED Summer School | Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in International Law: Human Rights and Beyond

22 July 2020 - 31 July 2020


The programme focuses on the emergence of SOGI and intersex issues in different areas of international law. Some lectures will focus specifically on sexual orientation, on gender identity/expression, or on sex characteristics, while other sessions will focus on specific regions (including Africa and the Middle East). Special attention will be given to important test-cases that have helped to achieve some international protection against homophobia and transphobia. Themes include: global and regional human rights mechanisms, sexual and gender minorities in refugee law, protection for women and LGBTIs in international criminal law.
