De la Reflexión a la Acción Guía sobre transparencia y rendición de cuentas para organizaciones filantrópicas

November 13, 2023

Para la filantropía, como en otros sectores de la vida pública y privada, actuar con transparencia y estar dispuesto a rendir cuentas de las propias acciones es una condición previa esencial para generar confianza, legitimidad y apoyo comunitario a la labor de cada organización.La aplicación de planes de transparencia y rendición de cuentas en todas las organizaciones es ahora parte integral de la buena gobernanza.Dados los retos a los que se enfrenta actualmente el sector filantrópico en muchas partes del mundo, existe una creciente demanda de orientación práctica para lograr una mayor transparencia y rendición de cuentas.Partiendo de una publicación anterior de WINGS (2015), "Transparencia y rendiciones de cuentas en la filantropía y la inversión social privada", esta nueva "Guía sobre transparencia y rendición de cuentas para organizaciones filantrópicas: De la reflexión a la acción" responde a esa demanda, proporcionando una guía paso a paso más detallada sobre cómo diseñar e implementar planes de transparencia y rendición de cuentas.

Promoviendo mejores condiciones para las donaciones transfonterizas

April 11, 2023

Recibir y usar fondos es el medio para que la sociedad civil opere e implemente actividades hacia un mundo más justo, inclusivo y sostenible. La filantropía independiente y habilitada, por lo tanto, es fundamental para el apoyo al papel de la sociedad civil en el ecosistema social y democrático de cualquier país.Sin embargo, están aumentando las restricciones a las donaciones transfronterizas que apoyan a la sociedad civil local y la creación de ecosistemas filantrópicos. Estas restricciones representan obstáculos importantes para la filantropía en todo el mundo.Este documento de política de WINGS proporciona recomendaciones a los gobiernos y las autoridades financieras sobre cómo pueden promover la reforma política de las regulaciones que actualmente desincentivan o prohíben la colaboración transfronteriza entre entidades filantrópicas en todo el mundo.English:

Encourager les dons transfrontaliers

April 11, 2023

Recevoir et utiliser des financements est le moyen pour la société civile d'opérer et de mettre en œuvre des activités vers un monde plus juste, inclusif et durable. La philanthropie indépendante et autorisée est donc essentielle au soutien du rôle de la société civile dans l'écosystème social et démocratique de tout pays.Cependant, les restrictions sur les dons transfrontaliers qui soutiennent la société civile locale et la construction d'un écosystème philanthropique se multiplient. Ces restrictions représentent des obstacles majeurs à la philanthropie dans le monde.Ce document politique de WINGS fournit des recommandations aux gouvernements et aux autorités financières sur la manière dont ils peuvent promouvoir une réforme politique des réglementations qui découragent ou interdisent actuellement la collaboration transfrontalière entre les entités philanthropiques du monde entier.English:  

Promoting Unhindered Cross-border Giving

April 11, 2023

Receiving and using funding is the means for civil society to operate and implement activities toward a more just, inclusive, and sustainable world. Independent and enabled philanthropy, therefore, is central to the support for civil society's role in the social and democratic ecosystem of any country. However, restrictions on cross-border giving that supports local civil society and philanthropic ecosystem building are growing. These restrictions represent major hurdles to philanthropy worldwide. This policy paper by WINGS provides recommendations to governments and financial authorities about how they can promote policy reform of regulations that currently disincentivise or prohibit cross-border collaboration among philanthropic entities worldwide. French: Spanish: 

The EU LGBTIQ Equality Strategy 2020-2025 and its key action items for trans people: TGEU Progress Report 2022

December 7, 2022

In November 2020, the European Commission published the EU LGBTIQ Equality Strategy 2020-2025, its first comprehensive strategy for advancing the rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, and queer (LGBTIQ) people in the European Union. The EU LGBTIQ Equality Strategy is an important symbol of a cohesive commitment by the European Commission towards achieving equality for LGBTIQ people in the EU. TGEU welcomed its release in 2020, noting that the strategy "signals a new level of awareness and commitment of the European Union for the equality of LGBTIQ people. TGEU, alongside other stakeholders, has been for years demanding a comprehensive response addressing the challenges of trans people."TGEU's first Progress Report 2021 identified the elements of the EU LGBTIQ Equality Strategy that specifically targeted the trans community or where we foresaw significant impact on the lives of trans people in the EU. In this year's report, we give an overall assessment of how the strategy is delivering (or not) for trans people in the EU, as well as an update of what has been achieved toward the biggest highlights that we identified in our last report. We also include examples of how TGEU has been supporting the implementation of the strategy and our recommendations. Finally, we comment on other features of the strategy that were highlighted in our last report and present a table of main pieces of legislation and their status. The report includes work done until early December 2022 and of which we have knowledge.

Intersections: Diving into the FRA LGBTI II survey data - Youth Briefing

December 6, 2022

Disaggregated data, which can look deeply into the lived experiences of marginalised people, is a key demand of LGBTI and other human rights groups. With this in mind, over the last year ILGA-Europe have been partnering with a variety of NGOs in the region to analyse the FRA 2019 LGBTI Survey II data and pull out experiences of those experiencing intersectional marginalisation. This work is based on analysis co-commissioned by ILGA-Europe and TGEU.This, our briefing on LGBTI Youth, in which we created sub-populations of respondents aged 15-24, 15-17 and 18-24, and compared them with all respondents to the survey, was carried out alongside the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer & Intersex Youth and Student Organisation (IGLYO).

Self-Determination Models in Europe: Practical Experiences

November 16, 2022

Legal gender recognition procedures reduce systemic marginalisation, discrimination and violence of trans people. States in Europe are required to provide for it and have quick, accessible, transparent procedures in place, that are based on self-determination and that are free from physical abuse.The fact that only few trans people make use of gender recognition procedures hints towards problems. "Around three in four trans individuals (78%) living in the EU have not changed their legal gender." This is mostly related to gender recognition procedures being arbitrary, inaccessible, featuring abusive requirements, and only offering the choice between 'male' and 'female' gender markers. Besides non-binary people, minors and migrants (non-citizens) are too often not able to access gender recognition procedures. Also, most self-determination models are still excluding these groups. Future reforms will hopefully make them accessible for anyone who needs them, irrespective of their gender identity, age, or migration status.This publication investigates practical experiences of self-determination models in Europe, looking into frequently asked questions on statistics of usage, problems with implementation, wider negative and positive implications as well as specific aspects relating to non-binary people, minors, and migrants.

Communications toolkit: campaigning for trans rights

October 26, 2022

Trans people live in a world where our rights and humanity are constantly under attack. This toolkit is a resource that takes trans organisations and activists through the starting points of developing good communication and campaigning skills to advocate for our rights.All over the world, every single day, people are campaigning for things they believe in. Some of the biggest transformations we've seen throughout history have been brought about by passionate people working together. Campaigns can inspire people to take further action, in addition to helping them understand the depth of the problem—and this all adds up to real change.Communication strategies are critical for movement building and have the potential to amplify trans people's voices, shift attitudes, and connect our personal struggles in global solidarity. Getting that right is key, especially as our community faces a well-trained and well-financed anti-gender movement.Although trans rights organisations and activists are increasingly using tools for communication and campaigning, most do not have the means to develop a strategy due to lack of funding and capacities.This toolkit addresses communications strategies as well as tips and tools to support organisations and activists in campaigning for trans rights and social justice.

FRA LGBTI Survey II (2019) data disaggregation

August 1, 2022

This document is a compilation of all of the data extracted from the 2019 FRA LGBTI II Survey in a project conducted by ILGA-Europe and Transgender Europe. The extraction project ran from August 2021 to August 2022. The purpose of this project was to build on the report by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Right (FRA), A long way to go to LGBTI equality1 , by investigating in more detail different groups of LGBTI people, particularly those exposed to intersectional marginalisation. The statistics used to write this brief come from the 2019 FRA LGBTI II Survey. The survey was open to individuals who were 15 years of age or older who self-identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and/or intersex. The survey was conducted online in 27 EU Member States, the UK, Serbia and North Macedonia between May and July of 2019. The respondents were asked a series of questions about their lived experiences, including information about their experiences of discrimination, harassment, violence, openness about their sexual orientation, gender identity, and sex characteristics, experiences in education and at work, their relationships and parenting, health, housing difficulties, living conditions and socio-economic status. The project sought to disaggregate responses of different groups of LGBTI people for comparison with one another and with the larger respondent population, and to make these data available for advocacy and policy efforts in the EU region.
