Economics and Animal Welfare

EuroFAWC conclusions on Economics and Animal Welfare

As discussed in the 2011 EuroFAWC meeting in Bergen

  • Opportunities for improved animal welfare must be provided by human beings;
  • Economics and other social sciences are keys to finding the right incentives for this to happen;
  • Therefore it is important in the future for animal welfare councils to include social science as part of the foundation for much of their policy advice.
