Improving the regulation of farm animal welfare: a case study of farm animal welfare regulation in Victoria, Australia
The thesis focuses on exploring key deficiencies within the animal welfare regulatory framework as it applies to farm animals in Australia, using insights from academic literature and empirical research.
Regulatory theory and experience will provide a starting point for a critique of the current state of animal welfare law and regulation. The thesis will also draw insights from the literature in the areas of animal ethics, animal rights and animal protection philosophy. These branches of theoretical literature will help illuminate some of the unique challenges that could arise in seeking to achieve meaningful reforms.
