My name is Katharina Beier and I am a researcher in the field of medical ethics at Goettingen University. I am interested in understandings of the family as a collective actor, its special moral agency and how it fits into individual-centered normative frameworks. Moreover, I am interested in family issues in the context of assisted reproductive technologies. I am looking forward to this summer school because I am convinced that it will enhance exchange on family issues in ethics and related disciplines. In particular, the summer school will offer a unique opportunity for young researchers to discuss their works with other scholars from different disciplines. Together with Sabine Wöhlke I will present a comparative ethical analysis of surrogate motherhood and living organ donation with special focus on the relational implications of these practices.
