Direitos fundamentais e identidade de género

Translated title of the contribution: Fundamental rights and gender identity

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution



Gender identity refers to each person’s deeply felt internal and individual experience of gender, constituting an essential element of one’s identity. Therefore, the right to (self-determination of) gender identity and the right to non-discrimination on the grounds of gender identity are fundamental rights protected under the Portuguese Constitutional and under the human rights instruments of International and European law. Such understanding survives any attempt to distort the ideals of equality, diversity and inclusion.
