Rainbow Europe is being updated. 2018 edition launches on 14 May!
With the Annual Review, ILGA-Europe examines the advances made at national level country-by-country in the 12 months from January to December 2018, our eighth edition. It also looks at the LGBTI equality work carried out by organisations such as the European Union, the United Nations, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and the Council of Europe.
The Rainbow Map&Index presents a picture of what the policy landscape is like right now, while the Annual Review also attempts to answer the question “what’s next?” Recommendations are intended to encourage policymakers to address the most pressing legal and policy priorities within the framework of our Rainbow Map&Index.
While ILGA-Europe are urging national authorities to follow these recommendations, we did not come up with the suggestions unilaterally. The recommendations were gathered following an online consultation with a wide range of LGBTI organisations in the various countries. As a result, the recommendations are tailored to the needs of activists working on the ground.
