2021 Summer Newsletter

Find below the second issue of Animal Law Europe’s newsletter, which covers April – June 2021.

Welcome to our second quarterly newsletter!

This is a free newsletter, and we hope to keep it that way. You can support this project by forwarding it, shouting about it, and giving credit to Animal Law Europe whenever possible!

And if you haven’t yet, we invite you to peruse our website, and follow Animal Law Europe on Twitter and LinkedIn.

Research Brief

This quarter’s research note is about the labeling of animal source food in the EU. In 2020, the European Commission announced the creation of an “EU animal welfare label” as part of the EU Green Deal. This research note explores the different regulatory pathways possible in EU law for the creation of such a label.

Coming Up!

I am slated to give a series of talks in September and October, including at the Canadian and U.S. Animal Law Conferences.
Make sure to check the news section of Animal Law Europe’s website if you’d like to be updated on upcoming talks, interviews, publication, etc.

Special news

We are immensely grateful to Animal Charity evaluators for selecting us as a grantee of the 2021 ACE Movement Grant, alongside organizations who do such great work for animals. This grant will allow us to conduct a comprehensive legal analysis of EU Farm Animal Welfare legislation, ahead of the 2023 revision. Animal Law Europe will also organize an event in Brussels, Belgium to present the report.
