The Handbook intends to be a comprehensive reference work that authoritatively establishes the new field of Global Animal Law, maps it, identifies relevant legal issues, and forms a platform for further legal research.
The Handbook will address foundational as well as cutting-edge issues of Global Animal Law. It will also identify and analyse key principles, concepts, and actors shaping this field. It shows the impact of other disciplines and different intellectual paradigms on the formation and on our understanding of Global Animal Law. Finally, country reports, religion reports, snapshots on critical topics, and case notes provide succinct information on salient and current issues and problems.
Three author workshops took place with generous support of the Fritz Thyssen Foundation.
