Legal Cases Challenging the Criminalisation of Homosexuality Supported by the Human Dignity Trust
The Human Dignity Trust (HDT) provides technical legal support in court cases around the world, where local litigants are seeking to challenge laws that criminalise – or impose other administrative penalties based on - sexual identity. The cases we work on, most of which are in Commonwealth countries, may be brought in domestic, regional or international courts or tribunals.
Our assistance is often confidential. We take guidance in all cases from local lawyers and work in the manner best suited to the context, and in the interests of the parties involved.
Our role may be as a party to the litigation, as counsel, as an intervenor or 'friend of the court', or as technical legal advisors in international human rights law, comparative constitutional law, strategic litigation assessments, pleadings and submission drafting and general case management.
