Animal welfare is inextricably linked to animal health, human health and ethical concerns. Burgeoning international trade is triggering more interest in animal welfare, in particular in countries wishing to increase trade in animals and foods of animal origin. This publication reviews the legislative framework for animal welfare, providing options for policy-makers and legal drafters. The text is set against the backdrop of developments in animal welfare science and growing international consensus on the importance of animal welfare.
