Starting from March 2018, ILGA began producing reports for each Treaty Bodies session that we will engage in. They are all listed below.

Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC)

* 77th session and 79th 79 pre-sessional Working Group

Questions on LGBTI children were sent to 2 out of 5 other countries (El Salvador and Japan), and SOGIESC recommendations were made for 5 out of 8 countries reviewed (Guatemala, Palau, Panama, Spain and Sri Lanka). 

Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW)

69th session

Fiji, Luxembourg, Malaysia and Suriname received their first SOGIESC recommendation from CEDAW, while Chile and Republic Korea received their second ones. For three countries, SOGIESC-inclusive recommendations have been included in follow-up lists of recommendations, and the State parties have to report about implementation of these recommendations to the Committee by March 2020.
