Handbook on monitoring and reporting homophobic and transphobic incidents

The aim of this publication is to contribute to increased and better reporting of homophobic and transphobic incidents by providing tools and a methodology to document and report violence motivated by hatred against LGBT people in a systematic and factual manner. It is designed for LGBT and human rights organisations who intend to monitor the occurrence of homophobic or transphobic incidents and violence, in order to advocate for legislative changes to increase legal protections from violence motivated by homophobia, lesbophobia and transphobia at national, European and international levels. The methodology and tools proposed to document how states and state actors protect or fail to protect the rights of the victims of hate crime or violence are those of human rights monitoring.
