Animal Advocacy Conference 2023

We are thrilled to announce the 2023 edition of the Animal Advocacy Conference: Insights from the Social Sciences.

The conference will take place June 22-24, 2023 at the University of Kent, UK.

We will bring together researchers from different fields in the social and behavioral sciences, and animal activists and advocates from around the world.

Learn about the latest ideas, findings and campaigns in the following domains:

  • The psychological, social, and societal factors shaping how we perceive and think about animals, human-animal relations, and animal welfare and rights
  • The impact of advocacy and activism strategies related to animal rights, veganism, meat reduction and reduction of other animal products (e.g., dairy, eggs)
  • The social and behavioral science of animal cruelty, meat consumption (and other animal-product consumption), vegetarianism/veganism, and speciesism
  • The connections and intersections between human-animal relations and human intergroup relations as well as between animal ethics and other social justice domains including environmentalism, feminism, and anti-racism

This conference uniquely bridges the gap between academic researchers and activists/professionals in the field of vegan and animal rights advocacy. The conference will create a stimulating environment where academics and activists/advocates exchange relevant knowledge, engage in lively debates, share their ideas, and can start collaborations.

Call for Submissions

The submission portal will open on November 2, 2023. We invite academic and research submissions in three different formats: Oral Presentation, Symposium, Poster Presentation.

  1. Dear PHAIR Society, Thanks so much for the conference announcement – it looks great! I am hoping you will run some of the conference online to facilitate access to researchers from Australasia who are trying to reduce their carbon impact? Many thanks Sarah

  2. Dear Sarah,
    Thank you for the enthusiasm and for your question.
    Most sessions will be in-person but we will hold some sessions online, and we are hoping to be able to live-stream some key sessions. People will also be able to submit abstracts to be considered for a virtual talk.
    We are still looking into the practical details and the feasibility of our online components.
