The plight of animal individuals and species inflicted on them by human activity is a global problem with detrimental repercussions for all humans and for the entire planet. The course zooms in on select issues, notably the accommodation of cultural pluralism, self-regulation n the food supply chain, and the question of animal rights (subjective legal entitlements as opposed to protective standards). The course suggests that a body of global animal law needs to be developed, accompanied by critical global animal studies.
