This Annual Review covers developments at national and international level between January and December 2015.
It is divided into two main sections: Institutional reviews provide an overview of developments at the United Nations, the Council of Europe, the European Union and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and the second section,
Country reviews, contains 49 chapters covering all European countries in alphabetical order.
Each of the chapters uses standardised thematic categories to order the information - this facilitates searches and comparative analysis between chapters. The Index at the end of the Annual Review tells you where to find information in particular categories. The Index is accompanied by a Glossary which explains some of the acronyms and terminology we use in the country chapters. The presentation of information in each category is marked by introductory bullet points and follows a chronological order, without distinguishing between positive and negative developments.
Finally, each country chapter opens with a short introduction that gives readers a snapshot of the LGBTI human rights situation in the country.
