CHLET launches Recent Legal Reforms on Gender Recognition: A Global Review 


A report titled Recent Legal Reforms on Gender Recognition: A Global Review was launched by the Centre for Health Law, Ethics and Technology (CHLET) at JGU. 



This report is the culmination of research undertaken by students in the course Beyond Binaries: Rights of Gender-Variant Persons Clinic. It was enriched by consultations that CHLET held on the rights of transgender and gender non-conforming groups.


The report looks at the legal status of gender-variant persons in ten countries and highlights the key developments that have occurred. It aims to provide important insights into the range of issues confronting gender-variant persons across jurisdictions and underscores the need for flexible and multi-dimensional laws protecting the rights of marginalised communities. The report also aims to serve as an information and advocacy tool for activists, lawyers, and policymakers.
