2019 Baby Markets Roundtable

June 2-3, 2019 • Hosted at George Washington University Law School
Co-Sponsored by the UCI School of Law and George Washington University Law School


The Baby Markets Roundtable will bring together an interdisciplinary group of scholars, policy-makers, civil society advocates, journalists, activists, and others to examine the myriad ways in which families are created, shaped, formed, and regulated. The Roundtable addresses the role and status of the child, mother, father, surrogate, grandparents, and the state in the creation and deconstruction of the family. Historically, the Roundtable explores the shifts in family-making, reflecting trends in single- and same-sex parenting as well as the ways in which heteronormativity constructs legal and social norms in child custody, child-rearing, and family planning.
