For the first time werkgruppe2 publishes a research for listening. In a podcast series we interview experts in Ireland, Sri Lanka, Colombia, Poland, the Netherlands, Germany, Argentina, Namibia, the USA and Japan. The podcasts are created in collaboration with DEINE KORRESPONDENTIN, a online magazine and network of freelance journalists from all over the world.
How is the right to abortion currently regulated in these ten countries? What does the practical implementation look like, where are the barriers, ambiguities and the need for action? Who are the feminist activists and what are they fighting for? Where is resistance? How does the right to abortion correspond with other social movements?
