Tickets Available for The Development of Abortion Rights in a Changing Europe

by | Jul 10, 2018

This conference will explore what human rights law has to say on the issue of abortion in 2018. The provision of abortion services for women, including the extent to which one can consider abortion a “right”, is one of the foremost human rights issues facing citizens of the United Kingdom and Ireland, and across Europe, today. This issue deserves the full engagement of our best legal minds. To this end, the conference will be entirely focused on the legal frameworks in place, their interaction with human rights law, and the potential of recent legal and political developments and litigation to change the law.

Crucially, this will not be a propagandist or partisan rally – issues will be dealt with openly, conversation and debate will be sparked and hopefully both our audiences and speakers will come away having heard new and insightful perspectives. Papers will be presented and panels moderated by both “pro-choice” and “pro-life” lawyers, academics, and postgraduate researchers.

The conference is being organised by students and activists from Cambridge, London, and Northern Ireland. The lead convenor is Cambridge undergraduate Law student, Helen Jennings.

Tickets are available here.
