Resolution on Extrajudicial Executions (United Nations)

Sweden seeks to amend the United Nations’ Resolution on Extrajudicial Executions (EJEs) to include a reference to gender identity.

For the past 12 years, this resolution has urged States “to investigate promptly and thoroughly all killings, including… all killings committed for any discriminatory reason, including sexual orientation.” Apart from Human Rights Council resolution 17/19, it is the only UN resolution with an explicit reference to sexual orientation.
