The Animals and Society Institute
Announces the Publication of the “Policy Papers”

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.

Examples include:
Virtual hunting
Cloning animals
Animals as property under the law
Foie gras production methods
Spay and neutering companion animals
Legal standing for nonhuman animals
Forced molting

Proposals consist of a letter of inquiry of not more than five double-spaced pages containing the following information:
Author’s name and contact information
Biographical notes and areas of expertise
Summary of proposed policy paper

Submit proposals by electronic attachment to Ken Shapiro and Kim W. Stallwood, coeditors:
