Researching sexual and reproductive rights lawfare, drivers of politicization and health effects of criminalization

Date: 21 August 2019
Time: 12:00-13:30
Venue: Bergen Global, Jekteviksbakken 31

This event is part of the Bergen Exchanges 2019. For a full schedule of the week’s events, see here.

A series of LawTransform  projects investigate the politicized and legalized struggles over sexual and reproductive rights that have intensified across the globe over the past decade. The research teams use a variety of methods – qualitative, quantitative and experimental – to understand what is driving the politicization of sexual and reproductive rights across regions and why some countries are moving in a more liberal direction while others are becoming more restrictive. The research also seeks to understand why courts become central battlegrounds in some contexts, and what the effects are. This panel will discuss some of the methodologies used and the findings they produced.

The event will be chaired by Siri Gloppen (UiB/CMI) and she will be joined by other members of the project team.
