We want to assess the influence of Europe through its international organizations and EU institutions on LGBTI+ Inclusion at home and abroad.
On our own diverse continent, we currently see backlash after backlash with legislation restricting the visibility of our community in Hungary and Poland, attacks on Pride from Georgia to Turkey and Croatia, the murder of community members in Belgium and Spain and entities like the Vatican trying to influence legislative progress in Italy.
Furthermore, what role should Europe play around the world, showing the importance of inclusion and equality combatting criminalization, discrimination, and aggression against a community under constant pressure, especially during the ongoing global pandemic.
