Trans Murder Monitoring»
The Trans Murder Monitoring (TMM) project systematically monitors, collects and analyses reports of homicides of trans and gender-diverse people worldwide. The Trans Murder Monitoring project started in April 2009 as a cooperation between Transgender Europe (TGEU) and the academic online magazine Liminalis – A Journal for Sex/Gender Emancipation and Resistance. With the involvement of the editorial team of Liminalis, the TMM became a pilot project of Transgender Europe’s “Transrespect versus Transphobia Worldwide” research project in September 2009.
Legal and Social Mapping»
The TvT “Legal and Social Mapping” research project was conducted by Transgender Europe in close cooperation with activists and experts from all world regions, who were able to draw on their expertise regarding current political processes and actual legal and social practices. The categories included in the mapping are; legal gender recognition, anti-discrimination, hate-crime and asylum legislation, criminalisation, prosecution and state-sponsored discrimination, trans-specific health care, community and movement, good practices and reports of transphobic incidents.
The comparative survey presented below emerged in response to the persistent need for evidence-based comparative data regarding the human-rights situation of trans and gender-diverse people. Complementing Transgender Europe’s (TGEU) on-going Trans Murder Monitoring (TMM) and Legal and Social Mapping projects, it forms part of the international Transrespect versus Transphobia Worldwide (TvT) research project.
