Country thematic studies on homophobia, transphobia and discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity

For the preparation of the report "Discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity in Europe", research was conducted in all 47 member states of the Council of Europe. For each Council of Europe member state independent national experts or consultants prepared a legal report and a sociological/social report to which access is given on this webpage. These reports are published for information purposes only. Any views or opinions expressed in the reports are those of the author and do not represent or engage the Council of Europe or the Office of the Commissioner for Human Rights.

The country thematic studies relating to the 27 EU member states were shared with the Council of Europe by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA). These were commissioned by the FRA to serve as background material for the 2010 update of its comparative legal analysis on discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity across the EU Member States. The views expressed in these country thematic studies do not necessarily reflect the views or the official position of the FRA and are made publicly available for information purposes only.
