Welcome to Regulating Relations

Forming Families Inside and Outside of the Reach of the Law

Advances in IVF and Assisted Reproductive Technology mean that intending parents now have more options available to them when faced with infertility. Cross-border reproductive travel, or reproductive tourism, is now a recognised means form of family formation. Although some states of Australia prohibit some forms of cross border reproductive travel, Australians vote with their feet and find their own path to parenthood, often circumventing the law. Australians are among the largest users of interstate and overseas assisted reproductive technologies (ART), including sex selection, surrogacy, egg or embryo donation.

We are talking to people who have travelled, or thought about travelling, interstate or overseas in order to form a family and donors and those who have considered egg or embryo donation. We will also be talking to Artificial Reproductive Technology professionals and those involved in regulating Artificial Reproductive Technology in Australia. We will make recommendations for legal and policy changes based upon the information we gather.
