THEMATIC SELECTION | ABORTION
Abortion practices involve millions of women every year and remain illegal in many countries. The library offers a selection intended to provide you with a multidisciplinary perspective about this societal issue, where politics, religion and law are intertwined.
Abortion practices involve millions of women every year and remain illegal in many countries. After the recent legalisation of abortion in Ireland and Argentina, for instance, the shock wave caused by the Supreme Court’s 2022 Dobbs decision has put abortion back at the heart of the debate. In France, 40 years after the Veil Act, the interruption volontaire de grossesse (IVG) remains a societal issue, where politics, religion and law are intertwined.
The library offers you a selection of books, articles, reports, podcasts, archive documents, etc., to borrow or to consult in the reading rooms (Paris and campuses) and from the thematic guides:
- United Nations,
- Political Science,
- and Sociology.
