AR, policies and law English talk by Maida Šabeta (Bosnia and Herzegovina)
Franz von Sales: Seminar room, ground floor
Animal rights and environmental policies and law – Based on experience in Bosnian approach to the Fur Farming ban.
This talk will present some background on the Bosnian situation for Animal Rights and the recent fur-farming ban. We will see how environmental law and policies (international, EU and local) were used and cover the impact that fur-farming has on the environment. The final aim of the talk is to introduce an agenda on a necessary international legal campaign to include animal rights and welfare into International Environmental Law, having regard that currently animals are included in Nature protection only (endangered animals) and hardly connected to the existing regulations.
