Brief description The 40th anniversary of the birth of the first baby conceived through in vitro fertilisation (IVF) will take place in 2018. This project will produce a history of IVF and the range of assisted reproductive technologies with which it is associated. These new forms of conception, gestation and parenting have transformed understandings of the family and have led to regulatory and policy responses and public debate, which can only be understood in a global frame. A series of transnational case studies, with a special focus on the Asia-Pacific region, will show the development of the present consumer, medical and regulatory environments and provide a historically-informed basis for dealing with policy deliberations locally and internationally.
