Bioethics and women’s rights in Islamic contexts in the era of reproductive technologies
Work has started on this book in cooperation with Nouzha Guessous. This book will focus on the connection between bioethics and women’s rights. It will explore this connection in a religious comparative approach in regard to the example of artificial reproductive technologies (ARTs) because of their impact on women in particular. The availability and application of ARTs produces a tension with traditional and religious views on sexuality, reproduction, parenthood, and family ties. These tensions have been studied in Western cultures but less so in the Islamic context. This book will focus particularly on the question how new practices of ARTs are influencing the rights of Islamic women in countries where Islam is the dominant religion as well as in secular countries where it is one religion among others. The book will include 20 chapters from authors from different countries and regions. It will be associated with a conference in May 2021 at the Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Research in Marseille, France (initially scheduled in May 2020 but postponed due to Covid-19).
