On 22 September 2022, the Comenius University Bratislava hosted an international scientific conference entitled "Interdisciplinary Aspects of the Status of Transgender People in Society" that was organised by the research team of the grant project VEGA 1/0350/21, which focuses on the ethical and legal aspects related to the informed consent of transgender minors. The project team, led by Professor Ľubomír Batka, is based at the Faculty of Law of the Comenius University Bratislava. The conference itself was held in the renovated premises of the Infocentre of Comenius University on Štúrova Street in Bratislava, which provided the organisers, participants and members of the public with a pleasant and comfortable venue for this scientific event. The primary aim of the conference was to organise a substantial discussion on the status of transgender people in society with the potential to identify shortcomings in the current legislation (not only) of the Slovak Republic. For this purpose, a number of experts dealing with the issue from diverse scientific fields (not only law, but also psychiatry, psychology, sociology, philosophy or theology) were invited in order to truly present the complex and interdisciplinary position of transgender people in our society.
