International Surrogacy Arrangements

Legal Regulation at the International Level

Edited by: Katarina Trimmings, Paul Beaumont

Divided into three parts, this book addresses the pressing challenges presented by the proliferation of international surrogacy arrangements. Part 1 contains National Reports on domestic approaches to surrogacy in the following countries: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, China, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Hungary, India, Ireland, Israel, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Venezuela. The reports are written by domestic specialists, each demonstrating the difficult and urgent problems arising in many States as a result of international surrogacy arrangements. These National Reports not only provide the backdrop to the proposed model regulation appearing in Part 3, but serve as a key resource for scrutinizing the most worrying incompatibilities in national laws on surrogacy. Part 2 of the book provides international perspectives on cross-border surrogacy, such as the 'human rights' perspective. Part 3 contains a General Report, which consists of an analysis of the National Reports, together with a proposed model of regulation of international surrogacy arrangements at the international level.
