AnimalEthics.net aims to share insights and reflections regarding animal ethics and animal welfare. It contains academic papers and other academic publications which as far as possible are made available in an open access format. Furthermore it contains introductory texts aimed primarily at students, professionals and university teachers from veterinary and animal science and other branches of biology.
The people and institutions behind AnimalEthics.net find it important that ethical views regarding animal use are discussed. The aim is to invite our readers to reflect and in the end make up their own mind. Thus the site is non-partisan and strongly committed to a pluralist approach to animal ethics.
The content of AnimalEthics.net will expand continuously as more publications are uploaded to the site. New material will feature on the front page under the heading News.
AnimalEthics.net has been developed under the auspices of the Danish Centre for Bioethics and Risk Assessment (CeBRA) and the Institute of Food and Resource Economics (FOI), University of Copenhagen.
