Ronli Sifris

Ronli Sifris is an Associate Professor in Monash University’s Faculty of Law and Deputy Director of the Castan Centre for Human Rights Law. Her research is predominantly focused on issues at the intersection of women’s reproductive health and the law (at both the domestic and international levels), including abortion, surrogacy, assisted reproduction and involuntary sterilisation. Her work also spans the spheres of health law, human rights and gender. She is the author of Reproductive Freedom, Torture and International Human Rights: Challenging the Masculinisation of Torture (Routledge, 2014) and is currently writing a book on surrogacy law, policy and practice. In addition, Ronli has co-edited two special issues of high-quality journals—one for Griffith Law Review focusing on ‘Gender, Health and the Law’, and the other for the Journal of Law and Medicine on ‘Commercial Surrogacy: What Role for Law in Australia?’. Her research has been quoted by the High Court of Australia and cited by the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom.
