Denmark: Open letter on meaningful consultation with people with variations of sex characteristics

Index Number: EUR 18/0102/2019

As human rights and intersex rights organisations, we are concerned about the way that the Danish Health Authority organised the conference titled “Konference om variationer i kønskarakteristika / Conference about differences in sex characteristics”, held on 30 January 2019 in Copenhagen. Although we welcomed the invitation made to a representative from OII Europe to speak at the conference and to Amnesty International to participate in a panel discussion, the failure to include intersex activists and organisations in the planning of this conference meant that they were not able to participate effectively.
