What the WTO victory means for animal welfare beyond the international seal trade

Tue, 06/10/2014

When Canada and Norway complained about the EU’s 2009 seal trade ban to the World Trade Organisation (WTO), the international trade body of 159 countries, we were very unsure as to what eventual outcomes might be. In a few cases it had ruled on the relationship between trade and public morality concerns, but never before had this international trade court taken on a case, let alone made a judgment, about animal welfare.

国際動物福祉基金(IFAW – www.ifaw.org)は、世界貿易機関(WTO)上級委員会が欧州連合(EU)のアザラシ製品禁輸を概ね支持したことを喜ばしく思います。WTOは前回の一審判決と同様に、動物福祉に対する懸念などの道徳的配慮が貿易制限を正当化できると判断しました。結果として、わずかな修正が行われるだけになりました。

「アザラシにとってすばらしい日です」とIFAWのカナダ野生生物プログラムディレクター、シェリル・フィンクは言います。「カナダ政府とノルウェー政府は残酷で不要な商業アザラシ猟の製品をヨーロッパ人に押し付けようと、あらゆる技術的な議論を用いました。しかし、良識と思いやりが勝利を収めました。今日は動物福祉にとって最高の日であり、WTOの判決は称賛すべきものです。」

WTO Rules in Favour of European Union Seal Product Ban

IFAW – the International Fund for Animal Welfare – is delighted that the World Trade Organization (WTO) Appellate Body has largely upheld the European Union’s ban on seal products. As in an earlier first instance ruling, the WTO found that moral considerations — including concerns about animal welfare — can justify trade restrictions. As a consequence only small adjustment will need to be made.
