Welcome to the Vienna based, multi- and interdisciplinary Animal-Advocacy.net Platform – AAP!

 Since 2001 the FEWD at University of Vienna coordinates the internationally oriented, multi- and interdisciplinary Animal-Advocacy.net Platform – AAP. This platform connects and supports academic research on animal advocacy and related topics in different ways. 
The umbrella term animal advocacy covers relevant discourses in the context of animal welfare / law / rights / liberation and their movements.  Especially in newer academic research and publications the term animal advocacy is used with this meaning.
The main regional focus is at the moment on Europe and there especially on CEEC - Central and Eastern European Countries.  

This AA platform is coordinated by the FEWD at University of Vienna. 
The multidisciplinary AAP team stays in exchange with relevant editorial members of the leading Animal Advocacy journals.  Especially with the editorial teams of Society and Animals, Politics and Animals, Journal of Animal Ethics. And certainly, with different Animal Law and Animal Welfare journals. 

 One main goal is also since 2001 to invite especially relevant researcher to the Vienna Animal Advocacy Lecture at University of Vienna.

Already in the year 1986 a group of students and academics at University of Vienna, Salzburg and Graz formed the multidisciplinary Austrian platform “Students for animal welfare and animal rights - SAWAR”.
From 1986 till the founding of the FEWD in the year 2001 members of the SAWAR searched regularly in all relevant databases
They collected books and especially articles from peer-reviewed journals for seminars, reading and discussion circle.

Since 2001 the FEWD organizes all relevant entries – back to 1970 – in a bibliography and additionally in an internal full text archive for animal advocacy.
So the main goal of the FEWD coordinated AA platform  is since many years to motivate and support master / doctoral students and more established researcher – especially post-docs – to do research on the different topics of animal advocacy.
For publication we support and cooperate with leading journals and publishers on this field. And additionally, the FEWD supports since 2001 students and young researcher attending at relevant conferences in Europe.
