Gender, Sexuality, and Rights

Rights related to gender and sexuality face both incremental progress and significant rollbacks of support in health and legal policy, with contestations often treated as constitutive of struggles between and within nations and cultures. Despite being delineated as a coherent field of rights, these struggles arise in remarkably asymmetrical ways: in some places, abortion rights are being rolled back, while gay rights are advancing; in some places, persons expressing gender and reproductive non-conformity are targeted, often through the criminal law. GHJP works in this complex and volatile area using a nuanced, multidisciplinary approach, moving between practice and scholarship to forge new alliances and provide analytics and groundwork for new policies.
