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.
