    Project Details

    Description

    This project documents the contemporary history of abortion debate in Thailand. It builds upon previous ethnographic research on abortion in Thailand to provide insights into contemporary Thai society, politics, religion and gender relations. The project will examine representations of abortion in the Thai media and popular press, and investigate parliamentary debates over amendments to abortion legislation in Thailand. It also provides a comparison between abortion debates in Thailand and those of the United States and Japan to explore the globalisation of abortion rhetoric. The resulting monograph will present a new cross-disciplinary perspective on abortion in a non-Western, non-Christian context.
