LGBTQI+: Italy in Geneva welcomes resolution renewing Independent Expert’s mandate

GENEVA, JULY 7 – With 23 votes in favor, 17 against and seven abstentions, the Human Rights Council in Geneva adopted a resolution renewing the Mandate of the Independent Expert on the protection against violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

The Italian Mission in Geneva welcomed the decision, and reaffirmed its commitment to fight against violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, as well as to protect and promote the human rights of LGBTIQ+ persons in the world.

Appreciation for the outcome of the vote was expressed also by Fabrizio Petri, the Special Envoy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on LGBTQI+ rights: “Very important news from Geneva”, Petri said. Welcoming the decision, the Italian diplomat expressed Italy’s total support to the work of Human Rights Council’s Victor Madrigal-Borloz for the advancement of LBGTQI+ persons rights worldwide.

Created through Human Rights Council resolution 32/2 in June 2016 for an initial period of three years, the mandate of the IE was renewed in June 2019 under resolution 41/18, and again today. Victor Madrigal-Borloz was appointed in late 2017 and started on his initial three-year term on 1 January 2018. A Costa Rican jurist, Mr. Madrigal-Borloz is a senior visiting researcher at Harvard Law School’s Human Rights Program, in residence at Harvard Law School from July 2019 to December 2023.
