The Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics aims to break new ground for the animals.

They want to put ethical concern for animals on the intellectual agenda, and contribute to an enlightened public debate about animals.

They believe that the rational case for animals is frequently understated within academia and misrepresented in the media.

The aim of the Centre is to create a world-wide association of academics from all disciplines who want to pioneer ethical perspectives on animals. They intend to create a new intellectual force – a select Fellowship – composed of accomplished academics able to make the ethical case for animals.
