Council of Europe 'LGBT Project' comes to an end

The Council of Europe's 'LGBT Project' has come to an end. 

The goal of the 28-month project was to 'contribute to the improvement of the quality of life among LGBT people in Europe' by 'supporting the governments in 5 to 10 partner member states in their efforts to develop a forceful, cross-sectoral LGBT policy, strengthening human rights for LGBT people, and supporting the national fight against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity'.

The Council of Europe's broadcast news outlet, The Journal, reports that 'other projects are likely to follow given the success of this first initiative'.
