The conference will focus on several difficult issues at the intersection of sexual self-determination and human rights, including same-sex marriage and family, the potential and limits of anti-discrimination laws, transgender rights, sex work and trafficking, youth sexuality, pornography as it affects minors, and the regulation of sex offenders. Individual papers will explore European and American attitudes and practices on each of these issues, with the goal of presenting new conceptual paradigms for future reform efforts. The conference brings together academics, practicing attorneys and therapists, state policy makers, and activists from various points of view.
Sponsored by the University of Texas, Austin, Center for European Studies, the European Union Center of Excellence, the European Union, the William A. Percy Foundation for Social and Historical Studies, the Department of Germanic Studies, and the Swedish Endowment
