A Divine Duty: Commercial Surrogacy in India and Kin Altruism

With a qualitative exploration of the Indian surrogacy market, this project investigates how surrogates, as consumers and co-producers, justify their participation in an increasingly regulated and stigmatized exchange process. This work contributes to our understanding of how constructions of altruism are used to justify this participation in dramatically under-researched context.
