The Centre for Animals and Social Justice (CASJ) is offering grants for UK-based applicants to pursue research in the field of the politics of animal protection. We welcome applications that combine academic rigour with topicality and potential social impact, with the ultimate aim of advancing animal protection. Applicants should note the necessity to disseminate their results outside academia (e.g. government, NGOs, media), including the production of a lay summary of their results on the CASJ website.
We are open to high-quality applications to advance the knowledge of the politics of animal protection, but we are particularly keen to support research in our priority sub-fields:
Applications may be interdisciplinary, but with a primary focus in politics.
Applicants may apply under two grant programmes:
The applicant must be employed at a UK university/higher education establishment. The payments will be made to this host institution.
The call for applications remains open until the annual budget is exhausted. We anticipate the programme to operate annually.
