Comparative perspectives on transgender identity laws

In commemoration of Transgender Day of Remembrance, Human RightS Initiative (HRSI) is pleased to invite you to our round table discussion:

COMPARATIVE PERSPECTIVES ON TRANSGENDER IDENTITY LAWS

What have we accomplished? What are the challenges? 

Five participants will present the current situation in different countries regarding the transgender population's access to legal gender recognition, hormonal therapy and/or gender confirmation surgery, and discuss how legislation has impacted transgender population's quality of life. Topics such as difficulties in access to healthcare and the job market will be discussed, as well as the overt violence that trans people face in the shape of police brutality and hate crimes.
