A blurb from Sabine, about the book is below.

At the beginning of this 21st century, consciousness is rising in favour of animal protection. 

Sentience of animals is now recognised, along with the need to ensure their welfare against avoidable suffering. A turning point takes place, progressively modifying our relationships with animals in the society, as reflected in worldwide law.

For the first time, this book describes the global evolution of animal welfare law at every level (national, European and international). This unprecedented study also explores the main ways to establish a universal protection of all animals under the aegis of the United Nations.

Full book is available to purchase on Amazon (in French).
