This book addresses the pressing challenges presented by the proliferation of international surrogacy arrangements. The book is divided into three parts. Part 1 contains National Reports on domestic approaches to surrogacy from Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Hungary, India, Ireland, Israel, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, Spain, 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 appearing in Part 3, but serve as a key resource for scrutinising the most worrying incompatibilities in national laws on surrogacy. Part 2 of the book contains two contributions that provide 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 appearing in Part 1, together with a proposed model of regulation of international surrogacy arrangements at the international level written by the two co-editors, Paul Beaumont and Katarina Trimmings. The research undertaken by Katarina Trimmings and Paul Beaumont from 2010 to 2012 was funded by the Nuffield Foundation.

Review quote

This book is highly insightful and important in its current form. The use of authorities and references is extensive, wide-ranging and noteworthy. It is an important body of knowledge for professionals, in the practice or study of surrogacy and assisted reproductive technologies. Reflections on lessons from a comparative perspective will aid and assist any decisions being taken on regulating surrogacy on an international level. -- Vishwam Jindal India Law Journal, Issue 1 An important original contribution of this book is to provide a framework for what a new convention on international surrogacy arrangements could look like. -- Graeme Edgerton Law Society Journal, Volume 51. Number 10. This highly informative book contains, first of all, a remarkable wealth of comparative legal materials on surrogacy, in the forms of national reports, covering a large number of jurisdictions from both sides of the international surrogacy market. -- Horatia Muir-Watt Edininburgh Law Review, Volume 18. 2014
