Conservative Backlash in Europe

14. March 2019 @ 16:00 - 18:00

Date: Thursday 14th March
Place: Bergen Global, Jekteviksbakken 31

In recent years, Europe has seen strong conservative mobilization against abortion, LGBT-rights and child protection services. Through the Internet, intensive lobbying and funding from abroad, these movements are gaining new ground – is the seemingly well-established right of abortion under threat in Europe? What are the driving forces behind this mobilization and is there a conservative network driving the movements?

In this seminar we will screen the documentary “Abortion: Backlash in Europe” which focuses on the European pro-life movements and the methods and arguments that these groups use. The screening will be followed by a conversation between Neil Datta, Barbara Ruiken and Siri Gloppen, in which they explore the links between the networks driving anti-abortion, anti-LGBT and anti-child protection service mobilization.

The event is free and open to all. Coffee and snacks will be served. Organized by Centre on Law and Social Tranformation.
