Event Time: Lunch 12.15-1pm - Lecture 1-2pm
Speaker: Dr Kay Lalor (Manchester Metropolitan University)

Event abstract: The paper considers how a key demand of intersex movements; the end of gender normalising surgery on intersex infants is framed in human rights terms across different scales and jurisdictions.
By comparing the way that international bodies, such as the European Court of human rights and intersex activists, perceive calls for an end to non-therapeutic interventions on intersex infants, it is possible to better understand both the potential and the limits of a human rights framework for ending this practice.
