Description

Join over 35 distinguished experts in discussing the body as an international human rights arena in which many forces, such as religion, science, media, and the market struggle for control over policies that control our bodies. We hope to illuminate how the often tacit assumptions about the "normal," "healthy," and "acceptable" body lead to policies which are, at their core, unjust.
