Equality Bodies contributing to the List of Actions to advance LGBTI equality

October 19th 2017

New Equinet Factsheet

The European Commission List of Actions by the Commission to advance LGBTI equality is a welcome policy tool available at EU level and it is essential to ensure its swift and ambitious implementation.

Nonetheless, it remains crucial to adopt comprehensive EU legislation to combat discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity, ensuring full legal protection to all LGBTI people in all spheres of life.

This factsheet aims to highlight some of the ways in which the work of national equality bodies in Europe contributes to the implementation of the List of Actions. It focuses on action n°4 “Supporting key actors responsible to promote and advance equal rights for LGBTI people in the EU” and provides insights and good practices in 4 areas:

  • Addressing bullying and harassment of LGBTI people
  • Supporting education actors to advance LGBTI equality
  • Supporting businesses to advance LGBTI equality
  • Supporting key actors to promote and enhance equality in access to healthcare for LGBTI people

It seeks to complement the conclusions of the Annual Report 2016 to Advance LGBTI Equality and contribute to upcoming exchanges of good practices.

The factsheet is based on the input of 21 Equinet members, as well as the 2013
Equinet Perspective on equality bodies promoting equality and non-discrimination for LGBTI people.
