Introduction

Author(s) : D.J. Mellor

Summary :

In focusing on the future of animal welfare this issue of the Scientific and Technical Review seeks to develop and illustrate two important themes.
The first is that animal welfare is a complex, multifaceted, international and domestic public policy issue with scientific, ethical, economic, religious and cultural dimensions plus important trade policy implications (1, 2). This theme is addressed directly in the seven papers in Section 1 – ‘Drivers for global animal welfare policies’. In various ways, this section illustrates the interactive nature of the numerous drivers, and highlights the dominant drivers in different regions of the world. The theme also receives further detailed treatment in other papers that deal with working animals (Section 7) and canine rabies control (Section 11) in different regions.
