Abstract [en]

This is a comparative case study research on the family planning programs of India, China, and Bangladesh´s attempts of gaining control over the population growth of the country. The study is done with basis in feminist theory, examining the views on women, men, gender equality, sanctity of the individual, state intervention and the individual right to privacy within the programs implementations. This has been done as to answer the research question; How do the state justify the particular family planning program used in the country, and the chosen application of it? The study showed that all three countries have patriarchal views, with women being more subjected to coercion in the name of family planning than men, and sons being preferred over daughters. The level of state intervention differs between the cases, but the justification of all three programs lie in the ability to provide for the citizens of the country. The family planning program is seen as the best way to be able to this for the government.
