Homosexuality remains criminalised in over 80 countries in the world. This includes 80% of Commonwealth jurisdictions. This is despite the fact that international human rights law is settled on this issue. The criminalisation of sexual identity will violate the rights to privacy, equality and dignity.

Chair: Ulele Burnham, Doughty Street Chambers, UK
Discussants: Alice Nkom, lawyer, Cameroon
Philip Dayle, lawyer, Jamaica and UK
Sibongile Ndashe, lawyer, South Africa, Interights
