Implementation of the Council of Europe recommendation

The Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe adopted a recommendation on measures to combat discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation or gender identity with support from all 47 Member States. In 2012-2013 Háttér Society prepared a detailed report about the implementation of the recommendation in Hungary, which in 2018, after five years, we are repeating with our partner organizations. 

Aims of the project: 

  • increase the awareness about the recommendation among Hungarian decision makers;
  • documenting the legal and social situation of LGBTQI people in Hungary;
  • compiling recommendations to the Hungarian government and public bodies.


  • collecting and analyzing relevant legislation, case law and policies;
  • collecting and analyzing reports and studies about the situation of LGBTQI people;
  • submitting freedom of information requests on legal practice, and analyzing responses;
  • research about the inclusion of LGBTQI topics in school textbooks;
  • preparing a detailed report and submitting it to the Council of Europe;
  • preparing a Hungarian and English website about the report. 


ILGA-Europe provides 5000 euros of financial support the project, of which Háttér receives 3600 euros.
