Date: 20th September 2022, 1.00-4.30

Venue: Christopher Place, Chalton Street, London,NW1 1JF

This workshop will be of interest to healthcare professionals with an interest in safeguarding in contraceptive provision, abortion care and maternity services, and experts from gender-based violence organisations. It focuses on reproductive coercion and abuse as a specific form of interpersonal violence which involves the exercise of power and control to reduce or prevent autonomous decision-making of another in the area of reproductive health (for example, denying access to birth control, abortion coercion, and enforced pregnancy).

The workshop will present interim findings from a qualitative research project which seeks to draw together knowledge and experiences from reproductive healthcare professionals and gender-based violence advocates.

It will provide an opportunity for in-depth discussions of the issues raised by the research. It will also inform the future direction of the project and ensure it reflects the priorities identified by stakeholders.

It also seeks to bring together experts in reproductive health and gender-based violence to develop a network of experts with an interest in this area for future policy and practice development.

We would like to thank the British Academy for funding this research project
