Intersex- New Interdisciplinary Approaches

Project description

Creating knowledge on intersex studies, policies and practices from a human rights perspective

Children with sex characteristics which do not fit the typical definitions of male or female are estimated to account for 0.05 % to 1.7 % of all births, according to the United Nations. Intersex children continue being exposed to nonconsensual and clinically unnecessary surgeries and other medical treatments, causing frequently harm to their health and wellbeing. The UN and other regional human rights bodies have called for a cessation of these medical practices. The INIA project (Intersex – New Interdisciplinary Approaches) aims at creating knowledge on intersex studies, policies and practices from a human rights perspective. For this purpose, INIA will train 10 early career researchers within a transdisciplinary and transectoral network of organisations from 10 countries, working towards ways of addressing the human rights and needs of this highly pathologised population.
