Ethics relating to Parenting, Families and Children

Members of MESH have longstanding interests in the ethics of parenthood, parenting and reproduction. Our interests in this area mostly relate to normative questions around how the rights and responsibilities of parents are characterised and justified at various stages of one’s ‘parental life’, be that prior to, during or after birth, or post family separation.
