Adoption and surrogacy - Maori perspectives (2016)
Type of ContentOral Presentation
PublisherUniversity of Canterbury. School of Health Sciences
I’m Annabel Ahuriri-Driscoll, I’m a lecturer in Maori health at the University of Canterbury. In relation to the adoption aspect of my presentation, I’m undertaking PhD study of the experiences of Maori adoptees. In relation to the focus on surrogacy, I’m part of a project that is examining surrogacy laws in New Zealand, and am exploring Maori perspectives within that.
The intention of my presentation today is to not necessarily provide a definitive Maori perspective in relation to either topic, but to consider some important threads, and weave these together, loosely!
