Ignatius Yordan Nugraha is a new PhD-researcher at the Human Rights Centre of Ghent University.
His research is focusing on the clash between international human rights law and national constitutional law in the case of LGB rights.
The rights of LGB people are currently protected under the jurisprudence of international human rights law. However, there are cases where national constitutions are at odd with it, especially in countries that have invoked sharia law as the source of all laws in their respective constitution. At the same time, the backlash against LGB rights in developing countries could push them to constitutionalize the limitation of the rights of LGB people, such as the thwarted effort in the Indonesian Constitutional Court in 2016-2017 to push for the criminalization of same-sex activities.
