Legal Gender Recognition in Thailand: A Legal and Policy Review
May 1, 2018
The rights to self-determination and recognition before the law are fundamental human rights belonging to everyone without distinction including transgender people. However, the human rights of transgender people in this regard continue to be violated and disrespected across the world, in the Asian region and within Thailand itself. This report, Legal Gender Recognition in Thailand: A Legal and Policy Review has captured and explored the small number of laws, regulations and policies in Thailand that include transgender people within their scope and which may be relevant to legal gender recognition.
The study is part of a multi-county project jointly implemented by UNDP and the Asia Pacific Transgender Network which conducted a comprehensive review of existing laws, policies and practices related to legal gender recognition for transgender people in the region.
