Latin American Dialogue on Sexuality and Geopolitics

Latin America has been a fertile ground for sexual and reproductive rights debates during the last decades, possibly as a result of its political and historical processes. From the Liberation Theology to the economic theories developed from and for the socioeconomic situation of Latin America during authoritative regime periods, the seek for social justice have helped to develop a tradition on debating sexual and reproductive rights, as well as gender rights policies, within the region.

The Latin American Dialogue on Sexuality and Geopolitics made use of this historical lens to think more in depth what we have and what we need to achieve in order to have effective sexual policy and sexual politics. Four focal points served as conceptual tools and guided the discussions during the seminar: political processes, economies, religion and science.
