The talk will draw from the Contraceptive Autonomy Study, a project designed to explore various dimensions of autonomy and coercion in family planning, and to develop new understandings about why and how contraceptive coercion manifests. This presentation will focus specially on modes of measurement, and the challenges to designing new demographic and health measures that better assess person-centered and justice-based approaches to contraceptive care.
