New ICJ Publication on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in Comparative Law

Published: September 6, 2011

The Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Justice: A Comparative Law Casebook collects and analyzes judicial decisions from more than 100 courts around the world.  The Casebook showcases the role of international and comparative law in litigation seeking to vindicate the human rights of LGBT individuals.  It is organized into fourteen chapters, each consisting of an introduction to the main legal issues and arguments followed by detailed case summaries. The chapters cover topics ranging from decriminalisation and employment discrimination to gender expression, military service and partnership recognition.  The cases are both old and new and collectively they trace the progression of the twin norms of equality and universality. The ICJ hopes that the Casebook will be of use to legal practitioners everywhere and will encourage human rights litigation in domestic courts.
