Shifting Futures: Imagined Reproductive Futures in Sweden
Using assisted reproductive technologies as an analytical launching point, Shifting Futures: Imagined Reproductive Futures in Sweden, examines the current political moment in Sweden and the drastic socio-legal shifts currently occurring within the Nordic country. This research focuses on young women’s (including trans-women) reproductive choices and reproductive decision-making as a lens through which to understand the intersections of far-right nationalism, anti-immigration policy, and recent drastic cuts to reproductive health care. This research will contribute insight into the current political moment in Sweden, providing guidance to policy-makers on the entanglements of immigration, politics, and socio-legal context in reproductive decision-making.
