The Liechtenstein Institute on Self-Determination's Project on Women in the Global Community (WGC) will host Sharon Bassan, Post-doctoral Research Associate in Values and Public Policy at Princeton University's Center for Human Values, as guest speaker at the WGC student fellows bi-monthly meeting on Tuesday, November 28, 2017. Bassan will discuss her research on the intersections of international surrogacy and human rights law. Participation in this event is open to Women in the Global Community student fellows only.

Sharon Bassan is a bioethicist, with a Ph.D. and JD. Her research combines a legal-philosophical background; policy-making experience; a global point of view; and a feminist perception. Sharon is interested in issues of health law, policy, and bioethics, particularly in the areas of health rights, reproductive ethics, health markets, global health governance, and global justice. Her Ph.D. dissertation addressed cross-border reproductive markets and possible regulative models, on which she has published several papers. Her current project is “Politics and Ethics in the Regulation of Reproductive Technologies” and her future plans are to develop a theory of global health bioethics. She is also affiliated with the Woodrow Wilson School's Office of Population Research.
