Protection Manual For LGBTI Defenders

Protection International

This manual we gives more space than other security manuals for defenders on the specific issues and obstacles that prevailing societal valuesand legal systems present to LGBTI defenders. We aim at addressing not only the affect of wider societal value systems on defenders protection but also to address how the internalisation of these value systems and the consequences of them can often have detrimental effects on the defenders capacity to manage their own security. We also include information that could be used by policy makers to ensure that SOGI rights are integrated into mainstream policies and that actions taken by stakeholders not only include LGBTI defenders but are targeted towards them and the specific issues they face in order to improve their over all protection.
