The Second Latin American Conference on Reproductive Rights, which will take place on November 28th, 29th and 30th in Costa Rica, is a forum created for the Latin American legal community to gather for dialogue, debate and deliberate around issues and dilemmas that work to protect reproductive rights more effectively in the region. This second Congress seeks to continue the academic focus on reproductive rights which originated with the first Latin American Legal Conference on Reproductive Rights, which took place in 2009 in Arequipa, Peru.
The 2nd Conference is being organized by the Inter American Institute for Human Rights and the Costa Rican Bar Association. Both institutions represent the defense and promotion of human rights in Costa Rica, and in the case of the Inter American Institute for Human Rights, at the Latin American level.
As academics, it is important to understand all sides of the argument.
