EAG 2017 London: Pathways into animal-advocacy research (James Spurgeon)

There are many unanswered research questions in effective animal advocacy that have the potential to shape the direction of the movement in various ways. Unfortunately, there is currently a shortage of researchers to answer these questions, and it is not always clear how someone can pursue a path in animal advocacy research. In this talk, I will be covering three diverse areas where ACE believes research can be particularly impactful—Interventions, Cultured Animal Products, and Wild Animal Suffering—with a focus on discussing the sort of researchers we need in the movement, and how EAs can contribute to reducing suffering for animals in this way.
