Reproductive Health in a Pluralist Legal World

Faculty of Law, University of Santiago de Compostela

30th – 31st March, 2017

Venue: Meeting Room, 1st Floor

On March 2016, the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ECSCR) adopted its General Comment n. 22 (GC/22) related to Right to Sexual and Reproductive Health. In its legal authoritative views, the Committee recalled that “[r]eproductive health […] concerns the capability to reproduce and the freedom to make informed, free and responsible decisions. It also includes access to a range of reproductive health information, goods, facilities and services to enable individuals to make informed, free and responsible decisions about their reproductive behavior. […]” (para. 5, E/C.12/GC/22).

On the basis of this recent legal authoritative opinion, and in the light of recent developments in many national legal orders, the academic community is called to substantively contribute to the enhancement of effective legal solutions to “new” social concerns.
