Una institución publica global a favor de los animales
Este trabajo aborda la necesidad de una institución pública global a favor de los animales. En particular, se centra en la definición de una nueva organización internacional para la protección de los animales teniendo en cuenta tres modelos: la Plataforma de la UE sobre Bienestar Animal, el Programa de las Naciones Unidas para el Medio Ambiente (PNUMA) y el Foro de las Naciones Unidas sobre los Bosques (UNFF). En referencia a estos modelos, se redacta el mandato de la organización sobre protección animal, se consideran los criterios de membresía y participación, así como sus mecanismos de funcionamiento. Además, se prevé la colaboración con otras organizaciones internacionales y se identifican campos de interés comunes. Se presta especial atención a la transición hacia un modelo económico y sostenible donde los animales son considerados seres vivos con intereses fundamentales en la preservación de su vida y dignidad, en lugar de recursos explotables. Para abordar los desafíos globales actuales relacionados con la protección animal y avanzar hacia unos derechos universales efectivos (no sólo para los seres humanos), se necesita la creación de una institución pública global a favor de los animales.
Palabras claveprotección animal, organización internacional, gobernanza global, derechos de los animales.
