Sexuality and the Law: Case Studies from Cambodia, Egypt, Nepal and South Africa

Published on 24 May 2019

This paper provides a synthesis of five case studies on the relationship between sexuality and law. These case studies were undertaken as part of the Sexuality, Poverty and Law theme of the DFID-funded Accountable Grant that explores, among other things, the relationships between sexuality and development.

The Sexuality and Law work aims to identify policy options and strategies for activist engagement with law and to inform the realisation of sexual rights. The work is particularly concerned with people negatively affected by laws on sex, gender and sexuality; with gaps in policy and inadequate implementation of laws that negatively affect people and their sexuality; and with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (LGBTIQ)1 activism around legal and human rights issues.
