Title Debating Religious Slaughter over 200 Years: From Spatial Concealment to Social Controversy? Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet British Veterinary Association Media type Web Duration/Length/Size 894 Words Country United Kingdom Date 25/10/18 Description I first become interested in the issue of stunning and animal slaughter while working as a post-doctoral researcher on the EU funded Dialrel project at Cardiff University between 2008-2010, which reviewed national legislation and research in the area alongside analysing the prevalence of various practices. I'm particularly interested in the historical background to the debate and how it has evolved over the years.
I continue to find the evolution of the global kosher and halal markets fascinating and, as we look to the future and what Brexit holds, I believe it is important to also look back on the historical context to understand how these debates around religious slaughter developed so we can approach them with perspective and understanding.
