UPR, session 25: a summary of SOGIESC recommendations

Fourteen countries went under review during the 25th session of the Universal Periodic Review working group, held in May 2016, and all of them received recommendations related to sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics (SOGIESC) issues.

As usual, ILGA followed the working group session closely, and is now sharing a report of all the SOGIESC recommendations delivered during the reviews of Antigua and Barbuda, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Papua New Guinea, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Samoa, Sudan, Suriname, Swaziland, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Thailand and Trinidad and Tobago.

The document is based on the draft report submitted by the working group, and also on notes taken by ILGA during the sessions: it contains the relevant SOGIESC remarks made by the State under review and the recommending State, along with recommendations of cycle I and II and advanced questions.
