The information presented in this review may be useful both for non-governmental organizations and
community activists and for the government, when planning advocacy processes, promoting the rights of
PLWH, gaymen, other MSM, and trans*people and eliminating the barriers hindering their access to services.
The goalof this review is to identifythe legal barriers for people living with HIV, gay men, other men who have sex with men and trans*people in exercising their rights in different areas. To conduct such review, ECOM developed a methodology and a survey questionnaire, which we filled in with the help of our local partners. When analyzing legal practices, consideration was given both to judicial practices and to the information provided by activists, received from the organizations documenting cases of human rights violations and protection of such rights, news in mass media, and reports of non-governmental organizations submitted to the international agencies.

This report presents the results of monitoring of public discourse about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT)1 issues in five countries: Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine,
conducted in late 2016 and early 2017. In all five countries it finds “hate speech” to be widespread in the media, online and propagated by influential public figures, including politicians. This reflects widespread violence, discrimination and hostility against LGBT people, reinforcing and exacerbating existing prejudices.

This report is the first quantitative evidence of trans people’s experiences of hate crime in European Union member states. As this research provided the opportunity for anonymous self-reporting, it is probably the most accurate picture of the extent of transphobic hate crime to date in the context of the trans people from the EU states that participated.

Among all the actions undertaken by ILGA-Europe to combat LGBTI-phobic hate crime, it quickly became clear that providing tools to help our members and other LGBTI organisations to engage with police forces meets a particularly important need. Raising awareness among police offi cers and the authorities, promoting adequate training curricula, and fostering targeted cooperation are necessary in order to protect LGBTI communities from hate violence and to support victims. However, it is equally clear that training the police is only part of more comprehensive strategies that are needed to achieve social change. To build inclusive societies, free from prejudice and hatred, is the only way to
eliminate homophobic and transphobic attacks.

In the past years, we have witnessed some positive developments of the legal environment to combat discrimination based on sexual orientation in the European Union Member States, although a lot still remains to be done. The social situation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, however, continues to be worrying. Homophobic and transphobic hate speech and hate crime are a common phenomenon in the European Union today.
This ARTICLE 19 policy paper proposes a set of recommendations to be used for interpreting and implementing those international obligations which prohibit all advocacy that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence (“incitement” or “incitement to hatred”), as mandated by Article 20(2) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (“ICCPR”). The recommendations also apply to some of the provisions contained in Article 4 of the International Convention on Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (“ICERD”).
Incidents and violence motivated by hatred against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT)
people take different forms: physical violence, hate speech, threats of violence, verbal abuse, etc.
Incidents and violence targeting LGBT people also take place in different places, including public
areas, schools, the workplace, or in the privacy of the home. In other words, homophobic and
transphobic incidents range from homophobic attacks during a Pride, lesbophobic violence in a
public space to homophobic bullying in schools.

The previous Framework Decision was subject to a number of constraints. First of all, it had to be agreed unanimously by the Council (ie, Member States’ justice ministers) and so was not very ambitious. Similarly, the European Parliament was only consulted on its adoption. However, the 2012 Directive was adopted in accordance with the EU’s ‘ordinary legislative procedure’, which means that the Council voted by a qualified majority and the European Parliament had joint decisionmaking powers with the Council.

Victim Support commissioned Michael Bell Associates to conduct primary research into the impact of hate crime on victims to inform the development of a service framework for supporting victims of hate crime and to help improve its ability to work in partnership with other organisations.
This toolkit is a guide for the trainers of health care providers. The overall aim is to prevent the spread of HIV and AIDS by making it easier for people living with HIV to access health services, disclose their status and prevent the spread of HIV to others, while also eliminating some of the barriers that impede the ability of uninfected women to protect themselves from the virus. Using the toolkit, you will be able to plan and organize educational sessions with health care providers to challenge HIV-related stigma and gender-based violence (also referred to as gender violence in this toolkit). The toolkit will help you raise awareness of the causes and consequences of stigma and violence, and promote action and advocacy to combat them.
