One day after the Copenhagen 2021 Human Rights Conference, up to 220 elected officials from all over the world will be invited to gather for an LGBTI+ Interparliamentary Plenary Assembly (IPA) at Christiansborg Palace, the seat of the Danish Parliament. We will invite a diverse group of elected officials from different parties, regions, backgrounds and beliefs, to make this event an impactful networking and learning experience.
We work together closely with our executive partners, the European Parliamentary Forum for Sexual and Reproductive Rights, Parliamentarians for Global Action and the Victory Institute. Together, we aim to put together an ambitious program including elected officials and speakers coming from all over the world, including challenging regions. In practice that means that we aim for a participation from the Global South and Eastern Europe of at least 20%, discussing topics relevant to all.
It is important to Copenhagen 2021 to involve a broad coalition of Danish parliamentarians from different political ideologies in the preparations of the IPA. Some of these have a personal connection with the community, others have worked for the advancement of LGBTI+ rights.
If you have questions about the Human Rights Forum or any of our human rights programming, please email us.
