In 2020, a new formal Nordic cooperation in the area of equal treatment and rights for LGBTI people began. To ensure that this cooperation initiative was well-targeted, effective and would have a long-term impact, Nordic Information on Gender (NIKK) was commissioned by the Nordic Council of Ministers to survey and analyse the LGBTI area.
The project resulted in:
By giving civil society actors the opportunity to meet in connection with the workshop, a foundation was laid for a Nordic civil society network in the LGBTI area, connected to the project.
The project also contributed to the Nordic countries’ policy development by making recommendations to the Nordic ministers for gender equality. The overall result is also the basis for the supplement to the Nordic Co-operation Programme on Gender Equality 2019-2024: “Equal rights, treatment and opportunities for LGBTI people in the Nordic region”.
