Event will be held in Slovene.
The medical care of intersex children and infants has been the subject of much criticism and change over the last ten years. We still know very little about what goes on in the decision-making processes between parents and doctors. The aim of this event is to open a debate on the practice of medical decision-making for intersex children and infants between doctors, parents and intersex children in European countries, with a focus on Slovenia. Martin Gramc, a young researcher at the University of Zurich, will present early findings from their research and address the key medical and legal dilemmas related to the medical care of intersex children. The discussion will be led by Katja Sešek.
The event is organised in collaboration with the University of Zurich and supported by the Horizon 2020 project.
