A brief guide to monitoring anti-trans violence
On this International Trans Day of Visibility (TDoV), TGEU, in collaboration with partner organisations, is publishing the booklet “A brief guide to monitoring anti-trans violence” in English and Russian.
Given the present challenging circumstances and growing concerns around COVID-19, TGEU is concerned about the human rights of trans and gender-diverse communities. This guide serves as a tool to support organisations and activists in reporting, collecting, and analysing anti-trans violence in their contexts and engaging with regional and global monitoring mechanisms.
This booklet primarily focuses on trans groups, LGBTQ and human rights organisations working with trans people. It involves experiences and best practices from trans and gender-diverse organisations operating in Brazil, Hungary, Kyrgyzstan, Serbia, Turkey, and Ukraine. The easy-to-use publication provides basic concepts of monitoring based on TGEU and its partners’ experiences in the field, accumulated in the past ten years. It also draws on the expertise from the Trans Murder Monitoring (TMM) research project, which has been systematically monitoring, collecting, and analysing reports of murders of trans and gender-diverse people worldwide since 2009.
