Research & monitoring

Through our Research and Monitoring (R&M) Department GEM will provide legal and social research focusing on emerging issues facing LGBTQIA+ Syrian refugees and displaced persons inside and outside Syria; such as national laws in Syria and Syrian refugee-hosting countries, as well as issues related to discrimination and treatment of LGBTQIA+, gender identity, social norms, LGBTQIA+ mental health, violations, resettlement programmed targeting LGBTQIA+ people and other related topics. 

The Research and Monitoring department aims to influence the change in national laws, support LGBTQIA+ through exploratory research, monitor emerging related issues in the region, build awareness and promote the rights of the LGBTQIA+ people.
