Protecting Animals Within and Across Borders: Extraterritorial Jurisdiction and the Challenges Across Borders

Publication Year

Addresses the animal protection issues created by the dispersal of production facilities in animal use industries across territories of multiple states, creating and exacerbating regulatory gaps and creating the conditions for a race to the bottom. Perspectives are drawn from general international law, trade law, and animal law, opening up questions about moral directionality, state and corporate duties owed to animals, and the comparative advantages of constitutional, criminal, and administrative animal law.
