Centre for Animals and Social Justice

The Centre for Animals and Social Justice (CASJ) is a UK-based charity and think tank dedicated to advancing the interests of animals within the framework of social justice. The organization was founded in 2011 by a group of academics and activists who recognized the need for a dedicated institution to address the ethical and political dimensions of animal protection.

Mission and Objectives[edit | edit source]

The primary mission of the CASJ is to integrate animal protection into mainstream social justice discourse and policy. The organization aims to achieve this through research, advocacy, and public engagement. Key objectives include:

  • Promoting the recognition of animals as sentient beings with intrinsic value.
  • Influencing public policy to incorporate animal welfare considerations.
  • Educating the public and policymakers about the ethical implications of animal use and exploitation.

Research and Advocacy[edit | edit source]

CASJ conducts interdisciplinary research that spans fields such as political science, sociology, ethics, and law. The organization publishes reports, policy briefs, and academic papers to inform and influence policymakers, stakeholders, and the general public.

The advocacy efforts of CASJ focus on legislative and policy changes at both national and international levels. The organization collaborates with other animal protection groups, social justice organizations, and academic institutions to amplify its impact.

Public Engagement[edit | edit source]

CASJ engages with the public through various channels, including social media, public lectures, and educational campaigns. The organization aims to raise awareness about the interconnectedness of animal welfare and social justice issues, encouraging individuals to consider the broader implications of their actions and choices.

Governance[edit | edit source]

The Centre for Animals and Social Justice is governed by a board of trustees, which includes experts in animal welfare, social justice, and public policy. The day-to-day operations are managed by a team of staff and volunteers who are passionate about advancing the organization's mission.
