Access to safe abortion in Italy: political opposition and social stigma.

The aim of the “Share the knowledge” initiative is to create a diverse, inclusive, and participatory knowledge network on human rights. Within this segment, we share valuable and interesting academic papers. Readers have the chance to deepen human rights-related topics and to get some ideas for further studies.

On occasion of International Women's Rights Day, we share the academic paper of Benedetta De Rosa, a second-year student in Human Rights and Multi-level Governance. The essay was submitted as the final paper for the course of Culture, society and human rights on the 13th February 2023.

In her work, Benedetta examines the access to legal and safe abortion in Italy. The sociological analysis conducted by Benedetta shows that voluntary interruption of pregnancy in Italy is limited and obstructed by political authorities and social stigma.

The following work is the intellectual property of Benedetta De Rosa and any attempt to pass her work off as your own may have academic and legal consequences.
