Meeting on Effective Policy and Practice to Address Homophobic Bullying in Education
UNESCO launches a publication on effective policy and practice to prevent and address homophobic bullying in educational institutions.
The publication builds on the findings of the first ever International Consultation on Homophobic Bullying in Educational Institutions to be held under the auspices of the United Nations, convened by UNESCO in December 2011. The publication will be launched during a meeting at UNESCO Headquarters on 16 May 2012, on the eve of the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO). IDAHO’s theme this year is “Combating Homophobia In Education and Through Education”. The meeting will bring together a broad range of stakeholders including governments, multilateral and civil society organizations as well as media.
“Homophobic bullying of young people in schools and local communities … is a grave violation of human rights and a public health crisis” - Ban Ki-moon, United Nations Secretary-General (8 December 2011)
