Description

This book focuses on religious fundamentalists' mobilization efforts against abortion in three United Nations Conferences. Using U.S. Christian and Egyptian Islamic fundamentalist groups as empirical cases, this account highlights these groups' efforts against the adoption of abortion in the 1984 Mexico Conference on Population, the 1994 Cairo conference on Population and the1995 Beijing Conference on Women. The account, which examines Northern (U.S. Christian) and Southern (Egyptian Islamists) anti-abortion networks' participation and representation within these forums, provides a unique glimpse into their engagement within international institutions.show more
