About the Conference
The Animal Advocacy Conference brings together researchers from different fields in the social and behavioural 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-animalrelations, 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 behavioural 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
The conference program will include some of the world’s leading scholars and advocates in the field with exciting public keynote presentations, several symposia and sessions with research talks, a poster session, panel discussions and workshops. Most sessions will be in-person but we will also hold some sessions online.
We look forward to reading your submissions!
