This book addresses the pressing challenges presented by the proliferation of international surrogacy arrangements:-
The book is divided into two parts. Part 1 contains a General Report, which consists of an analysis of the National Reports appearing in Part 2, together with a proposed model of regulation of international surrogacy arrangements at the international level written by the two co-authors, Paul Beaumont and Katarina Trimmings.
Part 2 contains National Reports on domestic approaches to surrogacy, including reports from Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Hungary, India, Ireland, Israel, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Romania, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Thailand, Uganda, Ukraine, United Kingdom, 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 authors' proposed model regulation, but serve as a key resource for scrutinising the most worrying incompatibilities in national laws on surrogacy.
