Is Bosnia and Herzegovina willing to keep hurting its economy?

Within the 2012 Think Tanks Providing Research and Advice through Interaction and Networking Programme (TRAIN), sponsored by the German Foreign Office (Stability Pact for South East Europe) and run by the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP), Populari undertook a study of Bosnia's veterinary sector through a rather unique lens: animal welfare at slaughter.


One of the project goals was to open a debate about the almost completely neglected animal welfare at slaughter component necessary to export to the European Union, as all attention so far has been on unmet hygiene, laboratory and disease control standards when it comes to meat export.
