DIALREL (Encouraging Dialogue on Issues of Religious Slaughter)
The proposed specific support action is intended to address issues relating to the practice of religious slaughter and the market and consumers. These include a review of national legislation and research, an analysis of the scale of practices, the influence of diverse religious beliefs on slaughter practices and the extent to which food consumption patterns are affected as well as public and consumer concerns for the welfare of animals intended for human consumption.
The principle aims of this project will be to explore the conditions for promoting the dialogue between interested parties and stakeholders and facilitating the adoption of good religious slaughter practices. The additional aim will be to review and propose a mechanism for implementation and monitoring of good practices.
A workplan consisting of 6 workpackages has been prepared. SIFO is active in wp 4 (6 man months) “The public debate and market transparency”, wp 5 (3 man months) “Promotion of the debate and dissemination activities” and wp 6 (1 mm) “Project management”.The implementation plan will be achieved by consultations, gathering, exchanging and reviewing of information and networking throughout. Dissemination activities will involve internet site(s) for networking and organised workshops that will provide the platform for debate, exchange of information and consensus.
