Update on Council of Europe recommendation to combat discrimination on sexual identity and gender identity

A draft report and collection of country specific questionnaires is available in respect of progress on the implementation of Recommendation CM/Rec(2010)5 of the Committee of Ministers. 

Recommendation CM/Rec(2010)5 invites member states to guarantee that a number of principles and measures are applied in national legislation, policies and practises relative to the protection of the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons and the promotion of tolerance towards them.

The Steering Committee for Human Rights (CDDH) invited each member state to complete a questionnaire detailing their progress in implementing the recommendations. 38 of the 47 member states responded and CDDH have published a compilation of the questionnaires.

A draft report which provides an overview and analysis of the responses is also available.
