UNRISD is playing an advisory role as a partner in VoiceIt, an integrated research-action project that aims to enhance the inclusion of LGBTQI+ people's voices, rights and concerns in political decision-making processes in Cyprus, Greece and Italy. The Institute brings its long-standing expertise on gender, inequality, political decision making and participation, and social and political inclusion, to the project -- linking it to global debates on LGBTQI+ rights and leaving no one behind in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals, and drawing lessons from the project for the Global South.
This report represents the main result of Work Package 2 in Cyprus. (See also the national reports on Italy
: the three national reports were compiled on the basis of a common table of contents, in order to allow a comparative perspective.) The report includes a review of primary and secondary data, including the results of a survey on the perceptions of LGBTQI+ people’s rights in the national context of reference, the discriminatory episodes, the national legal and policy framework and, lastly, recommendations for reforms.
Reports from this project are available in English, Greek, Italian and Turkish in the VoiceIt Library (select your language top right).
