THE PROJECT

REPROMOB

This coordinated project addresses different forms of reproductive mobility related to assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs) and adoption (subproject 1) and abortion (subproject 2). To do this, it explores the interconnection between reproductive governance, borders and (im)mobility and traces how these are based on, or produce, reproductive stratifications and inequalities in three main regions of the world: Europe, North Africa and Latin America; It will also analyze little-studied phenomena such as access to reproductive processes for people with physical or mental health problems in Spain; single and LGTBIQ+ people seeking access to TRAs in Spain, the United Kingdom, the United States and the Ukraine; cross-border travel of people seeking access to TRAs in Spain, Tunisia, Argentina and Mexico; gamete flows within Europe and Latin America; cross-border travel in Europe, North Africa and Latin America of people seeking abortion services far from where they live, including abroad. Finally, it also investigates the trips and experiences in the search for their biogenetic origins of people adopted in Spain, Argentina and Chile and of people born through ARTs with anonymous donation of gametes made in Spain to non-Spanish residents. Thus, the project will provide a deeper understanding and theorizing of reproductive mobilities and justice, particularly about places that are becoming important “breeding destinations” such as Spain in Europe, Tunisia in North Africa, and Mexico and Argentina in the Americas. Latina.

It is, therefore, innovative research relevant to the social sciences and sexual and reproductive health, public health, and human and reproductive rights that will provide innovative empirical data on the growing global phenomenon of reproductive mobilities. The project is organized into two sub-projects deployed in two synchronous work development nuclei Reproductive processes and journeys to origins and (Im)mobility and illegal practices: reproductive governance and transnational support networks, the first dedicated to studying different reproductive mobilities and the Second, to investigate the legal and social barriers to access to reproductive health and the organizations and social networks that contribute to overcoming them. The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on access to different types of reproductive health services and technologies will also be discussed if the emergency continues in the coming years. The project incorporates the perspective of professionals who work in reproductive health services, representatives of organizations, entities and companies, and legislators. The objective is to promote a scientific and political discussion on governance, justice and reproductive stratification, on the resistance strategies of users to discriminatory legislation and practices, deepen the knowledge of reproductive experiences such as fertility and infertility, ARTs and the abortion. The results will be shared not only in the academic and professional field of social sciences, health, public health and human and reproductive rights; They will also be provided to services and organizations that work in reproductive health and rights and to those responsible for public and private policies in the participating countries.
