Kinship, Ethics, and the Nation
This epilogue argues that kinship has served as a mechanism to define which modes of social belonging, political participation, and cultural intelligibility are allowed and which are banned. In other words, kinship has been intimately tied to the nation. The fact that family planning and immigration were often controlled by the same agencies and the fact that the rhetoric of republicanism surfaced repeatedly in the bioethics and Civil Pact of Solidarity (PACS) debates point to the fundamental interrelation of kinship and nation. Moreover, in many other countries, experts from all disciplines have regularly intervened in the field of family law, and conservative critics have also suggested a direct connection between familial and social structures.
