In 2022 we reach the 40th anniversary of the first European seal product import ban, but is this something to celebrate? The ban was agreed on in 1982 and imposed in 1983 by the European Economic Community (EEC) and now, as the anniversary approaches, it is a good time to reflect on the complicated implications of non-governmental organisation (NGO) campaigning. One NGO that led in the anti-sealing movement stands out for examination: Greenpeace. Greenpeace stands out because its journey highlights the complexities for NGOs trying to reconcile their current identities and values with their legacies of questionable actions and beliefs.
