Restoring the Natural Order: The religious extremists’ vision to mobilize European societies against human rights on sexuality and reproduction

Friday 20 April 2018 / 9:00-11:00 Mediterranean Museum, Stockholm, Sweden



In 2013, 20 US and European campaigners began strategizing ‘achievable goals’ to roll back human rights for sexual and reproductive health in Europe. Documents have recently emerged which reveal a detailed, extremist strategy called Restoring the Natural Order: an Agenda for Europe, which seeks to overturn existing laws on basic human rights related to sexuality and reproduction.

The strategy adopted by this Vatican-inspired professional advocacy network -- going by the name Agenda Europe -- is producing concrete results, such as the 2016 Polish bill to ban abortion, bans on equal marriage in several Central European countries and over a dozen comparable acts at national level and in European institutions aiming to limit women’s and LGBTI rights.

In order to help human rights defenders respond appropriately, this paper details Agenda Europe’s aims, strategies and key players.
