Protection Manual of LGBTI Defenders

This manual gives more space than other security manuals for defenders on the specific issues and obstacles that prevailing societal values and legal systems present to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) defenders. It aims 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. It also includes information that could be used by policy makers to ensure that Sexual Orientation and Sex/Gender Identity (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.
