Event description

Description

A number of students tickets are available. For more information, please contact events@cceia.org.

This event will explore the current status of reproductive rights around the world, noting advances that have been made and challenges that still exist. The speakers will also discuss how women's health issues are affected by the ongoing conflicts in several regions, the refugee/migration crisis, the role of religion in politics, populist movements, and the persistence of authoritarian regimes.

In addition, how might the new U.S. president address these issues? What policies might change?

Terry McGovern is interim chair and professor of population and family health at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health. McGovern founded the HIV Law Project in 1989 and served as its executive director until 1999.

María Antonieta Alcalde will be in conversation with McGovern. She is the director of advocacy of the International Planned Parenthood Federation/Western Hemisphere Region (IPPF/WHR) and director of the IPPF UN Liaison Office.

James Ketterer will introduce the discussion. He is director of the Bard Globalization and International Affairs Program (BGIA) and dean of International Studies at Bard College.

The presentation will be from 6pm to 7pm with a reception afterwards.

This is part of BGIA's James Chace Lecture Series, supported by Foreign Affairs magazine.
