Two data will be obtained:

  1. Total number of cases resolved through formal redress mechanisms in the country.
  2. Ratio between (i) numerator: total number of cases resolved through formal redress mechanisms in the country, and (ii) denominator: total number of reported cases of discrimination.

The measurement of this indicator should consider the first paragraph of Principle 2 of the Yogyakarta Declaration:

“Everyone is entitled to enjoy all human rights without discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. Everyone is entitled to equality before the law and the equal protection of the law without any such discrimination whether or not the enjoyment of another human right is also affected. The law shall prohibit any such discrimination and guarantee to all persons equal and effective protection against any such discrimination.” (

It is possible that one individual may be the victim in more than one case of discrimination. In order to simplify the calculation of the numerator, all records of discrimination cases are counted regardless of whether the victim’s name is repeated in other cases.
