The O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law would like to invite you to:

Reproductive Rights in Argentina: Reflections on the 2018 Legislative Debate

February 6, 2019
Hotung 6006 | 12:00 – 1:45 PM

Panelists:
Juan Méndez, Former United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, and Professor of Human Rights Law in Residence at American University Washington College of Law
Mariela Belski, Executive Director of Amnesty International Argentina
Edurne Cárdenas, Lawyer of the International Team at Centro de Estudios Legales y Sociales

Last year, Argentina captured the world’s attention as the country debated policy reform to further decriminalize certain reproductive health services. As the bill made its way through Congress, receiving sufficient votes in the House of Representatives but not in the Senate, thousands of protesters took to the streets to demonstrate either their support or their opposition.

What issues did the deliberations and hearings raise? What were the main points of contention? What arguments were relied upon (e.g., human rights, public health, gender equality, criminal law, etc.)? What comes next? What does the debate mean for the upcoming presidential elections and a possible reform of the Criminal Code in Argentina? What does it mean for the rest of Latin America and the Caribbean?

To address these and other questions, the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at the Georgetown University Law Center is pleased to host “Reproductive Rights in Argentina: Reflections on the 2018 Legislative Debate”. This event offers a unique opportunity to hear directly from representatives of institutions who played key roles in the 2018 legislative debate in Argentina, as well as to reflect on the different ways in which advocacy organizations, various branches of government, international organizations, and academia can lead, participate in or influence the policy reform process at the national level.

The event is open to all GULC students, faculty, and staff. Lunch will be served during the event.

Hope you can join us - all are welcome!

Submit a comment — Hands Off IX

Dear Friends of If/When/How,

Last November, the Department of Education opened the public commenting period on a proposed change to Title IX regulations, which are in place to protect U.S. students from sex discrimination in schools.

The proposed changes, if brought into effect, would have disastrous consequences.

Among them, schools would be required to investigate only the most extreme forms of harassment and assault, permitted to increase barriers to reporting harassment, allowed to heighten the burden of proof for sexual harassment complaints without also doing so for other forms of misconduct, and prevented from removing perpetrators from dorms or shared classes unless a disciplinary hearing is decided in favor of the victim.

These changes hinder access to justice and perpetuate the misconception that victims falsely accuse perpetrators and should not be presumed credible.

We need your help. Make your voice heard and submit a comment to the Department by January 28th expressing your thoughts on the changes. You can follow this step-by-step guide to quickly and easily submit your comment: https://www.handsoffix.org/submit-a-comment/

You can read the Department of Education's summary of the main changes at https://www2.ed.gov/…/proposed-title-ix-regulation-fact-she….

You can read more about the implications of the changes' language athttps://actionnetwork.org/…/…/Two_pager_on_proposed_rule.pdf

If you need more background, learn more about what your colleagues have expressed so far! Throughout December, Georgetown University hosted several listening sessions with students and faculty about the proposed regulations, and recently published a summary of the feedback on their website. You can find that here: https://georgetown.app.box.com/s/i057zlgnuqvopkq4t79pkzdi7n…

We ask that you please submit your comments by January 28th in an effort to prevent the effectuation of these changes. Thank you so much for your support!
