For those looking to dive into research on animal advocacy—either by conducting new research yourself or reading up on existing research—we provide a curated collection of research done by individuals, organizations, and academics, as well as an introduction to the Animal Advocacy Research Fund.
Part of our goal as a research organization is to develop methods for evaluating interventions and charities. The methods we’ve developed are tools that can be applied by ACE and by others to understand a variety of situations, and while they often draw from other evaluative practices, ACE uses them in specific and sometimes unique ways.
Our research briefs aim to answer specific questions that would inform our charity evaluations and grantmaking programs. They are short summaries of the available academic research on the topic, and include our assessment of how well the available research addresses the question.
