Lunchbox/Soapbox: Siobhan O'Sullivan on Animals, Equality and Democracy
While it may be true that nature is red in tooth and claw, it seems that for animals subject to human law – rather than the law of nature – life is much more like a lottery. In this presentation, political scientist Dr Siobhan O’Sullivan questions the way we view animal rights.
Dr. Siobhan O’Sullivan is a research fellow in the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Melbourne. She specialises in animal protection issues including the structure and functionality of animal welfare laws.
