In the present report, the United Nations Independent Expert on protection against violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity examines the process of abandoning the classification of certain forms of gender as a pathology and the full scope of the duty of the State to respect and promote respect of gender recognition as a component of identity. He also highlights some effective measures to ensure respect of gender identity and provides guidance to States on how to address violence and discrimination based on gender identity. ERA and its members and partners contributed to this report with a Report on Legal Gender Recognition in the Western Balkans and Turkey.
