ICJ Call For Applications: Workshop on Defending LGBTI Individuals in Court

LGBTI Workshop in Kenya, 5-7 November 2010

The ICJ is pleased to announce that, together with INTERIGHTS, it will host a workshop on defending LGBTI individuals in court. We are now accepting applications from lawyers who currently represent LGBTI individuals in criminal cases or who expect that they are likely to do so in the future.

The objective of the workshop is to examine legal issues related to the defense of individuals who are arrested and charged under laws that, for example, criminalize same-sex sexual activity or gender expression, or who are detained under suspicion of having violated such laws, or who work for LGBTI and human rights organizations that are targeted by authorities. The workshop will be held in Kenya from the 5th to the 7th of November 2010.

Criteria for eligibility:

- The call for applications is open to lawyers, whether in private practice or affiliated to an NGO, who work on LGBTI cases or are willing to represent LGBTI individuals in court. A total of 12-15 participants will be selected.

- Applicants must have a demonstrated interest in and/or knowledge of human rights law, including regional and international standards on equality and non-discrimination.

- Applicants must have a demonstrated interest in and/or knowledge of the issues in their countries that confront LGBTI individuals and organizations working on LGBTI-related issues.

- The working language for the meeting will be English

Closing date for applications: 31 August 2010

How to apply:

Please complete the application form and submit it together with your case summaries to Iya Kvitsiani-King at ikvitsiani-king@interights.org.

If you should require any further information please contact Alli Jernow at allison.jernow@icj.org.

Shortlisted applicants will be notified soon after the closing date and should be available for telephone interviews on 16 September 2010.
