New Zealand law currently fails to adequately address the complex issues around surrogacy. There has been considerable policy work on surrogacy over recent years but no action by governments.
International reproductive tourism is only going to become more popular in the future. New technologies are being developed which will raise additional issues. This is an ideal time to reconsider our laws relating to parenthood, surrogacy and artificial reproduction in general, and to update them to meet the challenges and needs of the 21st century.
The collection makes a unique contribution to the growing literature on surrogacy in New Zealand, and includes diverse and sometimes contradictory perspectives from a range of authors, many of whom have significant practical or research experience in surrogacy- related issues.
This collection of essays on commercial surrogacy in New Zealand is the result of an interdisciplinary workshop that took place in 2015, as part of the Rethinking Surrogacy Laws/ Te Kohuki Ture Kopu Whangai project run out of the Faculty of Law at the University of Canterbury.
