Abstract

This chapter aims to provide a comprehensive but condensed assessment of the current state of human rights protection offered to LGBTI people by the Council of Europe and, importantly, identify the gaps that currently exist in that protection. The chapter examines the work of the statutory bodies of the Council of Europe – the Committee of Ministers and the Parliamentary Assembly – as well as the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights.

This is an uncorrected draft of a chapter that will be published in a volume titled "International LGBTI Law: Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Law from an International-Comparative Perspective" edited by Prof Andreas R. Ziegler (University of Lausanne).

Keywords: LGBTI, European Convention on Human Rights, European Court of Human Rights, Council of Europe, sexual orientation, gender identity, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual, intersex, Committee of Ministers, Parliamentary Assembly
