Professor Will Kymlicka, Canadian Research Chair in Political Philosophy, Queen’s University
Co-presented with the Human Animal Research Network (HARN) and the Sydney Environment Institute
Animals have been largely neglected by theories of justice. While there have been some improvements in welfare and public awareness of animal suffering, political philosophers have been slow to address how we might construct societies to provide social justice towards animals. This forum generates more debate on how we can imagine social justice when we also consider animals.
Will Kymlicka, Canadian Research Chair in Political Philosophy, Queen’s University will address the question of why progressive and social justice movements have failed to take up issues relating to the welfare and rights of animals. Drawing from his recent work (co-authored with Sue Donaldson) Zoopolis: A Political Theory of Animal Rights, as well as his internationally renowned work on multiculturalism and citizenship, Professor Kymlicka will examine the political and cultural challenges to animal rights recognition.
