Millennium Fellowship Project: Always In, Never Out!
Always In, Never Out is a project by Millennium Fellow Naman Anand. It seeks to study the practice of 'Outing' (The Act of Disclosing an LGBTQIA+ person's identity without their consent) across Common Law Jurisdictions and its impact on the Human Rights of LGBTQIA+ people. It also seeks to study whether the aforementioned Act can be classified as a Civil or Criminal offence under the Domestic Laws of various United Nations Member States.
- The project aims to host at least one live event where there shall be a public discussion about this topic. Its larger aim, however, is the publication of a peer-reviewed, Open-Access Research Paper in a Law or Public Policy Journal that can be read by at least 2,500 stakeholders living in United Nations Member States that are governed by the Common Law system.
