Article | The ‘unexpected’ Montevideo Consensus

This commentary examines the outcome of the First Latin American Regional Conference on Population and Development, held in Montevideo in August of 2013 to mark the twentieth anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) and adopt forward-looking recommendations. While highly appraising the outcomes, this article maps the policy paradoxes of ICPD implementation in Latin America, in particular with regard to abortion, and charts challenges ahead to sustain the intersectional vision propelled by the 1994 Cairo Conference.
