About (English version):
The main focus of the current discussions on what causes refugees to leave their homeland is put on military or economic crises and emergency situations. However, asylum seekers also include people who are persecuted in their countries of origin due to their sexual orientation or their gender identity.The present expertise examines the EU's legislative developments for the recognition of the refugee status of persecuted lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people (LGBTI) and analyses the most important problems by which they are confronted at their arrival in Europe.
