The Right to Abortion in the United Kingdom and North America: Scales, Borders and Inequalities
Edited by Pierre-Alexandre Beylier and Véronique Molinari

From the Polish Constitutional Court’s decision in 2020 to Javier Milei’s statements on the eve of his election in Argentina in November 2023, not to mention the restrictions introduced in Hungary in September 2022, the right to abortion has, over the past five years, come under recurrent attack in countries where it was once taken for granted. Most notable of all was the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision, issued on 24 June 2022 by the U.S. Supreme Court, which caused an earthquake on both sides of the Atlantic. While the issue of abortion exile and the limits imposed on women’s right to abortion in North America, the United Kingdom and the island of Ireland have been the subject of a large number of studies in recent years, this issue focuses on the less‑explored subject of the role played by political architecture and sub‑state and intra‑state borders in this process. Through these examples, it aims to contribute to a more global reflection on the impact of federal or devolved systems on equality between women and men, but also on equality of citizenship between women in the same country.
