Human rights violations, which could amount to persecution or serious harm, are also committed by other non-State actors, such as family members or criminal gangs.

Some examples include domestic violence and ‘honour’ violence by family members, as well as other forms of gender-specific violence including sexual violence, violence against LGBTIQ individuals, etc. See the profiles of LGBTIQ persons and Women, etc.
