Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The 1998 Belfast Agreement seemed to promise women in Northern Ireland equality. This article examines the extent to which that promise has been met by exploring abortion rights in the region. It situates abortion within a citizens rightsframework. The article explores the interconnectedness of civil, political and social rights and the implications of an inability to vindicate any aspect of those rights.
