Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in International Law: Progress, Consolidation, Stagnation


31 July – 4 August 2017

This second edition of the summer school on key international law aspects of sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) will be held in The Hague, the International City of Peace and Justice. Students will also visit Amsterdam, where Amsterdam Gay Pride will take place that week.
The programme will focus on the emergence of SOGI issues in different areas of international law, such as human rights law, refugee law and international criminal law. Special attention will be given to important test-cases that have helped to achieve some international protection against homophobia and transphobia.
