The first think tank specializing in animal law & policy based in Brussels, Belgium dedicated to assisting organizations advance the interests of animals in European law and policy.
The European Institute for Animal Law & Policy (Animal Law Europe) provides expert research, training, public affairs, and monitoring services to nonprofits, public administrations, and private companies to help them achieve better treatment for animals.
Our mission is to guide all parties involved in rule-making that affects the treatment of animals, such as legislation and regulations, private standards, or non-written common industry practices.
Our expertise focuses non-human animals used for all types of exploitative purposes: food and fiber, entertainment, science, and companionship, as well as wild animals, which are increasingly harvested as commodities.
Animal Law Europe is driven by values of non-violence, and the alleviation of suffering and exploitation. We also support and promote the development of animal law as an autonomous legal and academic discipline.
