The Yogyakarta Principles Plus 10

Type of Resource: Handbook / Guide

Author: ISHR and Others

Publication Date: 2017

Since the Yogyakarta Principles were adopted in 2006, they have developed into an authoritative statement of the human rights of persons of ‘diverse sexual orientations and gender identities’. The Yogyakarta Principles plus 10 (YP+10) supplements the original 29, and aims to document and elaborate these developments through a set of Additional Principles and State Obligations. YP+10 should be read alongside the original 29 Yogyakarta Principles. Together, these documents provide an authoritative, expert exposition of international human rights law as it currently applies to the grounds of sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics.
