The 2020 – 2021 academic year was a time of much growth and change for the Centre for Animal Welfare (CAW). We grew to host 19 permanent and visiting faculty members, several of who are world leaders in their fields, half a dozen PhD and MPhil students, and three degree programmes. We jointly published at least two key reports, 11 academic articles and book chapters, and 42 popular articles, blogs and letters on animal welfare issues. We provided 32 external presentations, many of them as plenary, keynote or invited lectures, at universities and conferences internationally, including the universities of Oxford and Cambridge. Our students and faculty received several awards. Full report.
