Session 5 Plenary: The Future of Rights for Sexual Minorities

The recent situation in Lithuania makes it clear that progress toward equality for sexual minorities is not inevitable, even in Europe. However, hope for progress can also be found in international examples. Countries such as South Africa demonstrate that even countries with the very worst human rights records can change and make equality a legal and social goal. What lies ahead for sexual minorities? Where will progress be made, and how? Will the Balkans be part of progress on these issues?
