THE YOGYAKARTA PRINCIPLES plus 10

Resource Type: 
Guideline
International Mechanism
Recommendation

Since the Yogyakarta Principles were adopted in 2006, they have developed into an authoritative statement of the human rights of persons of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities. The period since then has seen significant developments in the field of international human rights law and in the understanding of violations affecting persons of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities as well as a recognition of the often distinct violations affecting persons on grounds of gender expression and sex characteristics.
The Yogyakarta Principles plus 10 (YP+10), acquired by the International Service for Human Rights and ARC International, aims to document and elaborate these developments through a set of Additional Principles and State Obligations. YP+10 should be read alongside the original 29 Yogyakarta Principles. Together, these documents provide an authoritative expert exposition of international human rights law as it currently applies to the grounds of sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics.
