Annual reports and documents
ILGA World shares a vision with the global community of LGBTI human rights defenders and allies.
It is a vision of a world where the human rights of all are respected - regardless of a person’s sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics.
A world where everyone can live in equality and freedom, where social justice is ensured and the diversity of LGBTI people and their communities is valued.
We are here to do our part.

Our guiding documents
ILGA World complaints
ILGA World has a Complaints Procedure that supplements the ILGA World Code of Conduct, ILGA World Constitution and other ILGA World policies. It sets out the policies and procedures that guide the receiving, investigation, and handling of complaints against ILGA World, ILGA World member organisations, ILGA World Board members, and ILGA World Staff.
ILGA World takes the position that where possible, without re-traumatising complainants, all complainants should try and resolve the issues in their complaint directly with the individual accused of the behaviour, with the assistance of any support person/s they feel comfortable with. When this has been attempted, or if the attempt will result in a re-traumatisation and or triggering of fear and anxiety to the complainant, then a complaint may be filed and ILGA World will follow the procedures set-out in its Complaints Procedure which includes steps for receiving, acknowledging, investigating, resolving & confirming, responding to the complainant and following-up.
The process is started by writing with the complaint to complaints [at] ilga [dot] org. Complaints sent to this email are received by the Executive Director, the two Co-Secretaries General of ILGA World and the Chair of the Ethics Committee of ILGA World. Complaints are dealt with confidentially. Serious complaints are handled by the ILGA World Board Ethics Committee which is a committee of five ILGA World Board members appointed by the Board.
ILGA World is built on the energy and passion of our member organisations.
Every year, our annual report captures the essence of the work we do to support them, and to help strengthen the network of human rights defenders working at local, national, regional and international levels to advance LGBTI human rights worldwide.
