Title: Taking the population control out of family planning measurement
Abstract: This talk will explore the ways that the ideology of fertility reduction permeates the design and evaluation of contemporary family planning projects, nearly 30 years after the International Conference on Population and Development called for an end to population control. 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.
