crossing-boundaries-smallLa Trobe Law School and La Trobe Asia are working collaboratively to present a public event on the topic:

Crossing Boundaries: Reproductive Travel in Asia – Legal, Cultural and Health Perspectives

A panel of speakers, chaired by Associate Professor Lee Ann Basser, will each speak for 15 mins or so followed by questions and discussion.  We envisage that this event will be of much interest to members of the public in addition to those working in family law, family studies, reproductive health law, bioethics, citizenship, maternal and child health and related areas.

  • Associate Professor Andrea Whittaker, ARC Future Fellow in Anthropology in the School of Social Sciences, Faculty of Arts, Monash University.
  • Dr Kerry Petersen, La Trobe Law School.
