Abortion Law and Political Institutions: Explaining Policy Resistance

Author: Jennifer Thompson

Palgrave Macmillan , Cham: Switzerland, 2018, pp. 248

This book, which covers the period from the early peace process in the 1980s to 2017, is a comprehensive study of abortion politics and policy in Northern Ireland. Adopting a feminist institutionalist framework, the author illustrates the ways in which abortion has been addressed at both the national level at Westminster and the devolved level at Stormont.
