Colloquium «Intersexuation: le droit à l’intégrité»

We are glad to spread an invitation to this colloquium organized by Interaction Suisse. As the event is in French and German, we do not provide an English translation (for German, just switch the website language).

Le colloque « Intersexuation : le droit à l’intégrité » aura lieu le 8 novembre 2019 de 9h 15 à 17h 00 à l’Université de Berne.

Depuis plus de dix ans, la situation des personnes connaissant des variations du développement sexuel est reconnue internationalement comme une question de droits humains. L’accent est mis sur l’intégrité
physique des personnes touchées et les opérations médicalement non
justifiées sont considérées comme des actes de torture ou des traitements inhumains. En outre, les personnes connaissant des variations du développement sexuel sont aussi victimes de préjugés dans divers domaines de la vie.

Ce colloque permettra de se pencher sur l’intersexuation sous l’angle des droits humains, des sciences sociales et du militantisme. Vous pouvez vous inscrire avant le 25 octobre en utilisant ce lien: https://www.conftool.com/skmr-gender2019/.

Voici le programme. Plus d’informations sont disponibles sur le site internet du CSDH https://www.skmr.ch/frz/domaines/genre/nouvelles/colloque-intersexuation.html.
