CEPIA, represented by Mariana Barsted, Karla Oldane and Jacqueline Pitanguy, attended the Dialogues on Reproductive Justice and Unconstitutional State of Things in Brazil with the presence of Iris Marín Ortiz (assistant judge of the Colombian Constitutional Court) and Daniel Sarmento (professor of Constitutional Law at UERJ and coordinator of the Fundamental Rights Practice of the same institution) who, in the first block of the event, mediated by Silvia Serrano Guzmán (O’Neill Institute), conceptualized and reflected on the unconstitutional state of things (ECI), how it is implemented and what are the implications in the Colombian and Brazilian experiences.

In the second block, mediated by Ana Paula Sciammarella (UNIRIO), Isabel Cristina Jaramillo (Professor and Director of Legal Theory at the Law School of the Universidad de Los Andes, Bogotá, and coordinator of ALAS Network) and Christine Peter (associate professor of the Masters and PhD in International Relations Law of UniCEUB) shared knowledge about the experiences of legal mobilization in the field of reproductive justice in both countries, in order to encourage reflection on the possibilities and potentialities of the ECI thesis for the realization of reproductive rights in Brazil.

Professor Christine Peter da Silva, constitutionalist involved with the project of the Open Society of Interpreters of the Brazilian Constitution of 1988 and feminist constitutional activist, present at this event, brought the important perspective of the feminist theory of law and the fundamental implementation of this perspective to public policies involving sexual and reproductive rights in Brazil.
