Event description

Description

Animal advocacy organisations have increasingly been developing networks to exchange practical and experiential lessons on advocacy, but often with the exclusion of scholarship. The study of human-animal relations has undergone a “political turn” in recent years with specific focus on linking ethical ideas to political practices and institutional. This has created an opportunity for animal rights, animal law and welfare policy-making to reconnect strongly with their roots in social movements and political practice.

The aim of this conference is to examine (re)new(ed) practices in the field of animal advocacy in Australasia and more broadly. The conference is a focused event, looking to enrich scholarship and link participants together. It will look at new forms of advocacy practice at the strategic and tactical levels; types of relationships in advocacy networks, and between different types of political actors; topics of concern for animal advocacy and the implications of these new subjects; and areas for advocacy practice and human-animal relations more broadly.
