This paper is not a specific proposal. Rather, its intention is to highlight for discussion the critical research and knowledge gaps with regard to human rights and inclusion for LGBTI people that require investments to ensure that they are part of the human rights and development agendas. In light of these significant gaps, the paper outlines a number of high-priority research needs that have been identified as a result of wide-ranging consultations with civil society organizations (CSOs), governments, research institutions, human rights and development agencies, and researchers.
