Session 4 Military And Police Encounters: Protection for LGBT People

In many countries of the world, the police and the military are clearly used as agents of the state to oppress sexual minorities. In countries such as those in the Balkans where homosexual acts are no longer criminal, the role of the police and military should be to protect the rights of LGBT people as they do all citizens. This panel will discuss the evolving relationship between the police and military and the LGBT communities in Sweden, Canada and Serbia, and the implications for the Balkan region.
