Description of the talk

Ireland does not currently have any specific legislation to regulate surrogacy, whether domestic or international. In 2022, a Parliamentary Committee (the Special Joint Oireachtas Committee on International Surrogacy) was established to “consider and make recommendations on measures to address issues arising from international surrogacy” having regard to the rights of the child, intending parents and surrogate. The Final Report of the Committee recommends that Ireland should introduce provisions to accommodate international surrogacy in the Health (Assisted Human Reproduction Bill) 2022.
This talk traces the development of Ireland’s approach to international surrogacy and appraises the suitability of current reform proposals. taking into account the recommendations of the Special Joint Oireachtas Committee on International Surrogacy and reform proposals that have been advanced in the United Kingdom.
