Envisioning Global LGBT Human Rights (LOI)

Summary: 
Envisioning Global LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) Human Rights is an international research project that fosters links between Canada and the Global South and will document and analyze i) criminalization of LGBT people, ii) flight from violence and persecution, iii) resistance to criminalization, and iv) the interaction between International Treaty Body Human Rights Mechanisms and LGBT rights initiatives.

Envisioning Global LGBT Human Rights (LOI)

Summary: 
Envisioning Global LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) Human Rights is an international research project that fosters links between Canada and the Global South and will document and analyze i) criminalization of LGBT people, ii) flight from violence and persecution, iii) resistance to criminalization, and iv) the interaction between International Treaty Body Human Rights Mechanisms and LGBT rights initiatives.

Description: 
Envisioning will examine locations where challenges to criminalization of sexual minorities are underway and research and document the complex processes underlying these cultures of resistance.
