SEI News: Sue Donaldson Speaks to Dinesh Wadiwel

Sue Donaldson, co-author with Will Kymicka of the book Zoopolis, chats to Dinesh Wadiwel to follow up on Professor Kymlicka’s successful trip to Sydney. Find out why she embraces a theory of animal citizenship.

In August this year, the Sydney Environment Institute hosted Will Kymlicka, Professor of Philosophy and Canada Research Chair in Philosophy at Queen’s University, for a Sydney Ideas public lecture on animals and social justice. He spoke about some of the big ideas from his 2011 book Zoopolis: a Political Theory of Animal Rights.

Recently, the book’s co-author Sue Donaldson was kind enough to catch up with Dinesh Wadiwel, from the Human Animal Rights Network. Find out why she embraces a broader conception of citizenship that could include animals, her thoughts on the relationship between liberalism and animal rights and how Zoopolis would challenge capitalism.
