Professor Mirko Bagaric from Deakin University was awarded a $15,000 grant to fund the project ‘Humanising Animals: Civilising People’, a monograph that addresses the discord between our moral values on the one hand, and our conduct towards animals on the other. The book builds on Professor Bagaric’s paper published in the Original Law Review in 2008, and explores this most striking and important paradox, while setting out pragmatic steps that individuals can take to help animals. The book was published in 2012 by CCH Australia with a foreword by The Hon. Michael Kirby AC CMG. To view a copy of the book cover, please click on the download icon below.
