Institute for Animals and Social Justice

From Kim Stallwood http://www.kimstallwood.com

After more than one year of meetings between academics and animal advocates which was prompted, in part, by my call for an animal rights think tank at the Minding Animals seminar in London in 2008, this week sees the launch of the Institute for Animals and Social Justice at an inaugural ‘Animals and Public Policy’ seminar at the London School of Economics on 30 June.

The IASJ’s mission is to open the realm of social justice to animals and hence advance animal protection. Therefore, the IASJ’s core strategic aim is:

To embed animal protection as a core policy goal of the UK Government, international governments and intergovernmental organisations, utilising and developing applied research as a primary tool to achieve this.

The IASJ’s priority programmes will involve research and advocacy in three crucial areas:

Animals’ legal/political status
Institutional representation for animals
Policy Strategies for Animal Protection
As one of the founding group, I look forward to establishing the IASJ to further the mission of advancing animal protection through policy research.
