chapter
posted on 2024-02-13, 17:14 authored by Joe Wills

This book explores the movement towards the recognition of animal sentience in the law.  It explores some first principles underpinning the recognition of animal sentience, including the nature and scope of sentience provisions, the connection between sentience and empathy, drafting issues, and the relationship between sentience recognition and animal rights. The book highlights the operation of animal sentience provisions in several jurisdictions throughout the world and considers some sector-specific applications and limitations of animal sentience recognition.
