The multi- and interdisciplinary FEWD Animal Advocacy project at University of Vienna has two main goals: The first is to provide inspiration to people from different academic disciplines as they explore avenues for their own research. The second is to encourage rational public discourse and dialogue about animal advocacy in civil society. The move to a society that is more humane and focused on species justice depends crucially on both empathy and rational argumentation.

National / regional member of the Eurogroup for Animals.

Important academic sources for our plannend call for paper are the department of Slavonic Studies at the University of Vienna.

Also the Slovak Sociological Society at the Slovak Academy of Sciences and the Slovak Political Science Association (we found only a Facebook page) are from basic relevance.
