Racialization, Genes and the Reinventions of Nation in Europe.

Campbell, B. (2007) 'Racialization, Genes and the Reinventions of Nation in Europe.', in Race, ethnicity and nation: perspectives from kinship and genetics. Oxford: Berghahn, pp. 95-124. Studies of the Biosocial Society., (1).


Across Europe the possibilities of new reproductive technologies have been responded to by national ethical regulatory regimes in markedly different ways. This study moves genetic debates onto a comparative and historical plane, by looking specifically at the connections between ethnic markings of sperm and egg donation, and economic and cultural policies towards immigrant communities in the UK, Norway and Spain. It argues that elements of European colonial concerns to avoid racial mixture are evident in contemporary policies towards bio-technology and multiculturalism.
