Dissertation Topic and Overview:  

The Success of the “Yes” Campaign in the Abortion Referendum in Ireland 2018

The aim of the study is to understand the trans-formative role that political campaigns can have in a society influencing the public debate. The discussion in this matter is about women’s reproductive rights and how the discourse of the pro-choice campaign has developed a new way to approach to women sexual and reproductive rights as part of the human rights and has changed the culture around it in Ireland and many other countries.
