My new project QTReproART compares six EU-states (Austria, Estonia, Poland, Spain, Sweden, UK) and their legislation concerning LGBTIQ-access for Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ARTs) and the experiences of queer and trans people who want/ed access to ART in these states. The overall aim is to provide guidelines for a more inclusive EU-framework for ART-access.
Furthermore I am part of the Queer studies research and seminar group and of the family and kinship research group.
