EU Questionnaire for Ukraine: LGBTQ dimension

Apr 29, 2022 | News

Recently the Ukrainian government received a special questionnaire to assess the readiness of a potential candidate for membership before the start of the EU accession process. Nash Svit Center decided to contribute to the review of this questionnaire by the EU institutions and answered, within its competence, questions directly related to the protection of the rights of LGBTQ people in Ukraine. Ten years ago our organization translated into Ukrainian and promoted the first document on the protection of LGBTQ rights throughout Europe — Recommendation CM/Rec(2010)5 of the Committee of Ministers to member states on measures to combat discrimination on grounds of discrimination sexual orientation or gender identity of the Council of Europe, which is also mentioned in the current EU questionnaire for Ukraine. We will communicate our opinion to the EU Delegation to Ukraine.
