Reproductive Justice - An Introduction

Whether, how and with whom we have children is a very intimate question, but also one of social justice. The brochure introduces the activist concept of Reproductive Justice as developed by Black feminists in the 1990s in the U.S. and transfers it to struggles for reproductive self-determination and equitable distribution of resources today in Germany. English version not available in print. Verfügbar auch auf Deutsch (Pdf and Print)  y disponible en Español.

Intersectionality and refugee women

This study critically examines some of the gendered and racialized notions about migrants embedded in and institutionalized through the EU Pact on Migration and Asylum, by engaging with the definitory and conceptual unclarities as to who the Pact defines as “especially vulnerable groups” and according to which criteria, making a relevant contribution to ongoing debates with regard to the EU’s future migration and border politics.
