by the FEWD

Welcome to our multi- and interdisciplinary platform!

This international project - based in Vienna - works with a special geographical focus on CEEC, the Danube region and the West Balkans.

Since 2001 - starting with Prof. Tom Regan - the FEWD team organizes the Vienna Animal Advocacy Lecture- VAAL at University of Vienna.

Additionally the FEWD coordinates since 2001 with researcher workshops for students based on the FEWD Bibliography on Animal Advocacy in the Social Sciences and Humanities. 

Originally 1986 the first Austrian workshops on this topic - legal theory and animal rights (movements) - organized at University of Vienna, are initiated by the SAWAR platform.
