Vegan law experts to discuss how to help animals at International conference
Lawyers and legal experts are set to gather at an annual conference to discuss how to influence the law for the benefit of animals and the planet.
The event is organised by the International Vegan Rights Alliance (IVRA) and The Vegan Society.
The theme this year explores how vegan rights can help bring about a society that respects rather than exploits other animals.
Dr Jeanette Rowley, founder of the IVRA said:
“Veganism in law disrupts the idea of exclusive protective rights only for humans.
“It emphasises our natural capacity to be responsible, dutiful and compassionate in response to vulnerability, injustice, oppression and suffering of animals.
“Promoting veganism in law will help bring about the paradigm shift we need to ensure that animals receive the protection they need and deserve.”
This year’s IVRA Conference is being held at the University of Milan, Italy from 31 May to 1 June.
