Surrogacy: Italy appeals the decision of the ECHR

Publié le 28 May, 2015

The case of Paradiso and Campanelli vs Italy continues.


In January 2015, the ECHR ruled against Italy who had removed a child purchased by a couple from a Russian surrogacy agency(Cf. Synthèse Gènéthique du 6 février 2015). The Italian government appealed this decision and requested that the case be referred to the Grand Chamber of the ECHR.  This case will be examined by a panel of five judges next Monday, 1 June.  If accepted, the Grand Chamber will be looking at its first surrogacy case. 


Grand Chamber judgments set precedents and are binding on the 47 Member States.
