This glossary is a living document, as the matters falling under ECRI’s mandate and the associated terminology evolve. It contains a compilation of terms described in ECRI’s General Policy Recommendations (GPRs) and/or their Explanatory Memorandums (EM). Other descriptions have been taken from the 2011 publication of the Council of Europe’s Commissioner for Human Rights’ (CommDH) “Discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity in Europe”. A small number of terms have been included for the first time in this glossary or taken from other sources that are indicated in brackets. ECRI will continue to develop its terminology, where appropriate in parallel to its work on the revision or drawing-up of GPRs.
