The “Legal and Social Mapping” was conducted by Transgender Europe’s Transrespect versus Transphobia Worldwide (TvT) research project in close cooperation with activists and experts from all world regions. A comprehensive questionnaire developed by the TvT project’s research team and reviewed by more than 15 researchers and activists from all six worlds regions was distributed to over 100 international activists and experts, who provided detailed information including comments and explanations on the specific situation in the respective country.
At present, 116 countries are listed in the following regions: Africa (9 countries), Asia (18 countries), Central and South America (25 countries), Europe (49 countries), and Oceania (17 countries). (Russia and Turkey are listed under both Asia and Europe).
The mappings provide detailed information on the following subjects:
Legal Gender Recognition, Anti-Discrimination, Hate Crime and Asylum Legislation
Community/Movement, Good Practices and Reports of Transphobic Incidents
Criminalisation, Prosecution, State-Sponsored Discrimination and Hormones, Hormone Therapy and Gender Reassignment Treatment/Surgery
