UNRISD is hosting a side event at the 38th session of the Human Rights Council

On Tuesday, 19 June, UNRISD is hosting Where Do We Go from Here? Safeguarding Trans* People’s Rights. This meeting, an official side event of the 38th session of the Human Rights Council, will convene experts from international organizations, civil society and government to discuss the following questions:

  • What good practices can be identified and lessons learned from efforts being made by national and local governments to ensure human rights for trans* people?
  • Which parts of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development can be, or are being, mobilized to ensure that people of all gender identities are able to enjoy the full range of human rights? Are there gaps in the Agenda that need to be closed by progressive policy making?
  • What role can civil society play in ensuring that trans women, trans men, gender fluid and non-binary people are not left behind by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development?
  • How can social development research contribute to achieving trans* rights in the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development?
  • What are some of the successes and challenges in ensuring universal access to social protection, given diverse needs within populations?

This event is sponsored by the Human Rights and Integration Department at the Ministry for European Affairs and Equality, Republic of Malta.
