Réttindi transgender fólks á Íslandi (The Rights of Transgender People in Iceland)
A report on the rights of transgender people in Iceland was recently published by the Icelandic Human Rights Centre. The writers are Sandra Lyngdorf, Kolbrún Birna Árdal, Erna Sif Jónsdóttir, Guðrún Dögg Guðmundsdóttir and Jóna Aðalheiður Pálmadóttir. The publication is supported by the ICEHR's research fund, the ministry of interior and ministry of welfare. Up until recently, there was no comprehensive legislation on the rights of transsexuals in Iceland but there is one in many of our neighbouring countries. The legal status of transsexuals in Iceland had been very unclear, expecially for those who have not had or finished, or don't want a full gender reassignment treatment. A new law on the rights of transsexuals was passed in the Icelandic Parliament in June 2012, which will without a doubt improve the lives of transgender people in Iceland.
The book is available in print at our office but it can also be found here as a pdf file.
