November 2, Surrogacy – On Reproductive Labor and Labor Law, Sharon Bassan.

Is labor law an appropriate mechanism to regulate cross-border surrogacy? Work-related arguments concerning surrogacy usually convey support for the view that commercial surrogacy deserves some sort of remuneration. The talk focuses on the conceptualization of surrogacy as work, the surrogate as a worker, and on labor law, which should accordingly be assumed appropriate for regulating such markets. In order to do that, I analyse the purpose of labor law and the conceptual framework of work and worker and examine their applicability to the conduct of surrogacy arrangements.
