This means that ILGA-Europe try to bring the voices of LGBTI people and NGOs into consultations and debates on new legislative proposals. Our advocacy work takes place in 49 countries across the continent of Europe, not just focusing on EU member states. We work with the European Union institutions, as well as the Council of Europe and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe. In close cooperation with our member organisations, we follow up on the implementation of EU legislation at European and national level.
