31st session of the Human Rights Council

31 HRCWe are pleased to share with you ARC’s Report on the 31st session of the Human Rights Council, held from February 29 to March 24.

The 31st Session of the Human Rights Council provided us an opportunity to think of the issue of discrimination and violence faced by LGBTI people from an intersectional lens.

Perhaps the sharpest light on SOGI being a part of a mainstream human rights issue came up in the interactive dialogue with the Special Rapporteur on Torture who made the analysis of torture on the basis of SOGI a key part of his Report.

The resolutions on human rights defenders and Palestine also provided opportunities for adopting an intersectional perspective. The other highlights were the implications of the resolution on Syria and the resolution on the family for SOGI rights.
