Le mariage à l’épreuve : les défis du partenariat de même sexe et de la procréation médicalement assistée en Suisse 

Translated title of the contribution: Same-Sex Partnership in Switzerland: The impact of Values

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article examines how the heteronormative norm embedded in the institution of marriage has been put into question through the legal recognition of same sex couples and the access to assisted reproductive technologies in Switzerland. The paper shows that assessing the transformation of the meaning scheme attributed to the marriage and the family in the ongoing political debates on same-sex couples is enhanced by a diachronic analytical perspective focused on the different regulatory scenes, where the debate has taken place.
