Course on Human Ethics and Animal Rights
“The course introduces some fundamental concepts in animal rights and welfare. Simple to follow and presenting the bare facts in an appealing manner, this course will help everyone to understand the basic facts surrounding our use of animals in today’s society. The course includes a wealth of background resources and exercises to introduce the topic”.

“I think this course is an excellent achievement, and that students will benefit immensely from engaging with it. Apart from the content, which ‘hits’ home without being preachy (and thereby potentially off-putting to the unconverted)., I am taken with the ease of navigation. For me as a bit of a technophobe, this has been an especially pleasant experience. Again, well done, you deserve all the kudo you will no doubt get for putting together this inspirational and comprehensive course”.

"An understanding of animals as sentient beings with interests of their own has been increasingly a target of research. The use of animals for human purposes and the suffering humans are causing them is of great concern worldwide. Their exploitation is undeniably cruel and unsustainable from many points of view. Animal Law is a new field of law striving to clarify the legal aspects of the protection of animals, including the view of animals as holders of rights. Congratulations to all involved at Animal Voice Academy for making the course Human Ethics and Animal Rights a reality. It is making history for all animals. Giving them rights does not take anything away from humans. On the contrary."
