The Regulation of Assisted Reproductive Technologies in Europe: Variation, Convergence and Trends
This book explores the social, ethical and legal implications of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART). Providing a comparative analysis of several European countries, the authors evaluate the varied approaches to the application of ART throughout Europe.
From a global perspective, countries take very different approaches to the regulation of ART. The countries apply restrictions to the access criteria for these treatments and/or direct restrictions to the practice of the techniques themselves. To understand these varied approaches to ART practice and regulation, it is necessary to understand the societal and political background from which they emerged. This book therefore consists of case studies from eight European countries which provide insights into the status and development of the regulation of ART in the last 40 years. The country cases from all over Europe and the three comparative chapters provide insights into the diversity of current ART regulation across the continent as well as into similarities, differences and trends in this regulatory area.
This book will be of interest to practitioners of ART who are interested in understanding the differences in regulation of ART in Europe, as well as long term trends in this respect. Given the ethical and legal implications the book explores, it will also be of interest to students or researchers in the fields of Social Sciences, Humanities and Law.
