Dreilinden’s 5th monitoring study published:
“German funding for LGBTIQA+ human rights work in the Global South and East”

The study, jointly published by Dreilinden gGmbH and the German Institute for Human Rights (Deutschen Institut für Menschenrechte), examines for the fifth time and for the years 2018 and 2019 to what financial extent and with what objectives German organizations have promoted the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, and agender or asexual people (LGBTQIA+) in the Global South and East.

To date, these target groups remain underfunded. For example, Germany’s share of global LGBTIQA+ funding in 2018 was just 3,59 percent, despite being identified as the second largest donor country in the world.

The study is mainly written in German. It contains an Executive Summary from page 8-14, that is written in englisch.
