Essentially Equality: International Legal Protection for Sexual Minorities
This study critically examines the extent to which international legal protection is afforded to sexual minorities. The author assesses definitional elements of sexual minorities and international legal protection, and looks at international measures such as the many United Nations instruments, regional and national instruments such as the European Convention on Human Rights and other measures such as the Yogyakarta Principles and the Brazilian Resolution. It is through these analyses that the author constructively assesses where the strengths and weaknesses of current legal provision are, and identifies recommendations for future legal reform.
