The purpose of the ASI Policy Papers series is to shape
the U.S. political landscape by providing elected representatives,
government officials, scholars, media and both animal protection and
corporate stake-holders with the research analysis and data they need to
inform the public policy debate on animal protection.
Through the Policy Papers series, the Institute provides a
unique venue where investigators can develop positions on current policy
issues related to human-animal relationships. Authors use existing
scientific and theoretical literature to present the pros and cons of
particular practices involving our treatment of nonhuman animals, framing
their scientifically and theoretically grounded analysis and commentary in
terms of changes in practice through regulation and legislation.
The ASI invites proposals for the ASI Policy Papers.
Authors whose proposals are accepted are offered a $500 stipend to produce
a manuscript of not more than 20,000 words. Each accepted policy paper
will be published as a separately bound monograph.
The scope of the papers is any topic in the fields of
Human-Animal Studies and Animal Science that has policy implications for
our treatment of nonhuman animals.
Animals as property under the law
Foie gras production methods
Spay and neutering companion animals
Legal standing for nonhuman animals
