It is open to the candidate to define the precise scope of their proposed PhD, but it should fit, broadly, within the following parameters:

Irish policy makers are currently struggling with the question of how best to regulate surrogacy arrangements and various complex methods of assisted human reproduction, and there is currently no international consensus regarding the appropriate regulation of these assisted reproductive techniques (ARTs).

This PhD research will be law reform-oriented in that it will critically engage with surrogacy/ART law reform processes taking place in Ireland, the EU and internationally, but it will also critically analyse the legal and ethical concerns oft-associated with these methods of assisted human reproduction and explore how domestic/international legal regulation that assuages these concerns yet achieves an equitable balance between the legal position of intended parents, surrogates, donors and the surrogate-born or donor-conceived child might best be achieved.
