COMPLETE: Complete recognition of LBTI rights under the convention
Countries where CEDAW Committee’s approach has been to provide a complex and refined recognition of LBTI constituencies or SOGIESC elements. These may include a completely separate section for LBTI people, all LBTI constituencies are mentioned; contains context-based positive rights (economic, social, civil and political, along with bodily autonomy) and recommendations include mechanisms to actualise these rights.
SOME: Rights affirming reading for LBTI people
Countries where CEDAW Committee’s approach has been to provide LBTI rights-affirming recommendations that contain SOGIESC elements. This recognition may be basic or developed but works to include both negative (removal of discrimination and barriers to access) as well as positive rights such as health, justice and gender-based violence. This may include either one or more of the LBTI constituencies or may refer to them as a cluster of disadvantaged people. Intersex people may or may not be mentioned.
NONE: No recognition of LBTI rights under the convention
Countries where CEDAW Committee’s approach has been to provide rights-affirming recommendations that do not contain SOGIESC elements or mention LBTI constituencies.
