Session 2, Part 3 Legal, Cultural and Social Contexts: Human Rights, Sexual Orientation Law and Social Development at the International and European Level Law, Gender, Community and Social Justice

Equality for sexual minorities is closely linked to gender equality. Legal equality for sexual minorities is essential, but it may not be sufficient in itself to create lasting changes in social attitudes without the engagement of the community. This panel will discuss the links between gender issues and the rights of sexual minorities, and law and social justice as a communal goal.

Session 2, Part 4 Legal, Cultural and Social Contexts: Human Rights, Sexual Orientation Law and Social Development at the International and European Level Sexual Minorities, Anti- discrimination Law and Equal Rights

The Toonen case offered hope that international legal instruments, institutions and law might offer solutions. More recent rulings, such as Young v. Australia suggest that international law requires some level of legal protection for same- sex couples. This panel will discuss the extent to which international law and European law have helped to advance equality for sexual minorities. The panel will also consider the relationship of law and society in the context of the LGBT social movement, and how law affects, and is affected by, social change.
