Religious animal slaughter, immigration and global trade in a post-Brexit Britain

Press/Media: Research

Description

The EU’s 2009 Slaughter Regulation that requires all animals to be stunned before slaughter gives a “religious exception” for halal and kosher meat. As debates about the rights and place of minorities are increasing in post-Brexit Britain, anti-halal sentiment is also growing with issues of religious slaughter often conflated with wider concerns about immigration and integration. Here John Lever argues that increased transparency in the meat supply chain will help improve public understanding of the underlying debates of religious animal slaughter as well as help the UK to make the most of emerging trade opportunities.
