HRS Fall 2012 – Spring 2013

HUMAN RIGHTS OF LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, AND TRANSGENDER (LGBT) PEOPLE

The focus of 2012-2013 Seminar is on the dialogue pertaining to the human rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered (LGBT) people. By dialogue, we understand an ongoing conversation with key constituencies (academic, activist, IGOs and NGOs, and local communities) to address homophobic and transphobic violence in all its manifestations, as well as ongoing discriminatory practices, and explore ways to combat them.
