Studying Social Movements to Understand Animal Advocacy
We study and analyze the progress of other social movements to further inform our understanding of animal advocacy. We expect this to be a long term project, and are releasing interim results as we obtain them.
In the first phase of our social movements project, we’ll gradually release case studies of several social movements. The first case study released deals with animal activism itself, in order to establish a point of comparison for other movements we study. Later, we’ll analyze those case studies as a group to find patterns common to many movements, with the hope of using these patterns to inform our thinking about animal advocacy. Case studies that have been released so far are linked below. More information about our overall thinking on this project is available on our blog.
