SOGIESC Law Project


This site is dedicated to the Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Expression, and Sex Characteristics (SOGIESC) Law Project, i.e. legal issues affecting sxual minorities, in particular LGBTI individuals. This field includes fields such as criminal law, human rights law, anti-discrimination law, and family law.

Learn more about the human rights challenges facing lesbian, gay, bi, trans and intersex (LGBTI) people everywhere and the actions that can be taken to tackle violence and discrimination and protect the rights of LGBT people everywhere. These United Nations factsheets break down the problems and the solutions



We have a homepage.

We have a blog (recommended).

We can be followed and liked on Facebook....and on Twitter.



On the international level, we have launched the International Academic Forum on SOGIESC Law. It is intended to involve scholars around the world interested in the field to exchange ideas and cooperate on research projects and provide anyone interested in the field with reliable and high-qualitiy information.

Professor Andreas R Ziegler publishes regularly in this field and represents Switzerland and Liechtenstein in the European Commission of Experts on Sexual Orientation Law (ECSOL)



On a national level the project cooperates closely with the Reseau Genre, droit et sexualités  and the Réseau Suisse de recherche sur les discrimination.

We participate in a project among all Swiss universities: (Network Gender Studies CH).



The University offers currently a course "Genre, droit et justice" (Eléonore Lépinard, Lucile Quéré et Marta Roca Escoda) and a course "Loi fédérale sur l'égalité" (Christine Sattiva Spring) in French.

Within the University of Lausanne the project cooperates with the Plateforme en études genre (PlaGE) and in particular its Interdisciplinary Research Group on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI Research Group).
