Katrina Karkazis and myself are pleased to announce our collaborative peer-reviewed article on IAAF ‘differences of sex development’ regulations in the Journal of Bioethical Inquiry. We argue that the regulations ‘violate dignity, threaten privacy, and mete out both suspicion and judgement on the sex and gender identity of the athletes regulated’.

The article is open access.
