China, African Elephants and the Ivory Ban

The World Wildlife Fund commented on China's recent decision to close down its domestic ivory trade by the end of 2017 in an article dated 30 December 2016 titled "China To Ban Domestic Ivory Trade by 2017."

The South African Institute of International Affairs published in September 2016 an analysis titled "Values, Culture and the Ivory Trade Ban" by Yu-Shan Wu, Stephanie Rupp, and Chris Alden. It deals with the important issue of ending elephant poaching at the source and suggests how policymakers can ensure that international policies gain traction at the local level, where it really matters.
