Opening Doors: A Global Survey of NGO Attitudes Towards LGBTI Refugees & Asylum Seekers

Published: June 28, 2012

This project was conceived by ORAM with essential support from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). We are deeply grateful to UNHCR for its review of the survey instrument, and for the access it gave us to UNHCR non-governmental organization (NGO) partners worldwide.

The web-based survey that is the basis of this report was designed and conducted collaboratively by ORAM and the Department of Sociology of Indiana University. The Center for Survey Research (CSR) provided data analysis support. We wish to acknowledge and thank Patricia McManus, Associate Professor of Sociology at Indiana University, and Oren Pizmony-Levy for developing the survey
and their processing and analyzing of the results. We also wish to thank Hubert Izienicki and Aaron Ponce for their help with research and with conducting the survey. Except where indicated otherwise, statistical analyses presented in this work were performed by the Department of Sociology of Indiana University. This report exemplifies the extraordinary power of collaboration between the NGO and academic sectors, and their ability to integrate the strengths of scientific methodology with informed and impassioned advocacy.
