Résumé de la thèse

In this research I will analyze the way in which concrete actors use global discourses on human rights to produce transformations in legal tools regulating reproductive practices in local levels, as well as the effects of that embedding process, both in the macro level of institutional practices and in the micro level of individual experiences. The study will focus on the case of legal transformation regarding abortion and adoption by same sex couples occurred in Colombia in the last twelve years. Multi-sited ethnography, qualitative discourse analysis and semi-structured interviews will be used as methods of data collection. This research will contribute to the fields of gender and transnational social movements, political sociology, sociology of human rights and anthropology of human rights.
