The 25th ILGA World Conference approved resolution on ECOSOC

in WORLD, 17/12/2010

ILGA ECOSOC Status

The 25th ILGA conference

A) on the basis that ILGA represents over 700 LGBTI member organisations throughout the world equally committed to fight discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, and to promote the universal respect for and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms, including the elimination of all forms of discrimination and also including the realisation of the specific provisions of the following international human rights instruments:


· The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights;
· The International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights;
· The International Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Racial Discrimination;
· The Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination against Women;
· The Convention on the Rights of the Child
· The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
· United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples,

B) concerned that ILGA's applications for ECOSOC status have been unjustly denied 4 times,

C) disturbed by the discriminatory treatment from the UN NGO Committee demanding once again (November 2010) ILGA to subject our membership to additional, unreasonable and unjust requirements outside of the protocol concerning ECOSOC applications,

1) condemns the repeated attempts to link ILGA and LGBTI organisations with paedophilia

2) insists that the United Nations recognizes ILGA's right to obtain ECOSOC status in order to engage with the United Nations system like any other legitimate organisation.
