EU - Animal welfare organisations are scrutinising the impact of trade rules on environmental, social and domestic policies.

Trade liberalisation is being promoted as a mean of achieving peace and development, according to Eurogroup for Animals.

After the structural reforms of the 1980s, the international community engaged in the 1990s in a new episode of liberalisation with the reform of the multilateral trading system (from GATT to WTO) coupled with another wave of economic liberalisation (the so called 'Doha Development Round').

As a component of civil society, animal welfare organisations are scrutinising the impact of trade rules on environmental, social and domestic policies. They are also examining closely the consequences of trade liberalisation on developing countries.
