The aim of this study tour is to inform the participating representatives of civil society organisations about international and European legal bases which prohibit discriminations on the ground of sexual orientations. This study tour also aims at giving examples of good practices from civil society organisations based in Brussels and in the member states offering the participants networking opportunities among themselves and with European-level civil society organisations active in this field.
