Finland and Kosovo united against homophobia

Finland is helping Kosovo fight against homophobia and transphobia. How? Through the EU funded project Fight against Homophobia and Transphobia officially launched on 15 May 2014 in Pristina. The project tackles homophobia as one face of discrimination, emanating from biased attitudes in society that lead to exclusion and hostility and create a severe obstacle for people to fully enjoy their human rights. The EU twinning project aims to build capacity of the Kosovo authorities, especially the police, judiciary, educators and media. The project is lead by the Austrian Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights and supported by the Finnish National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL).
