The animal question: past, present and future

The Economics Library takes advantage of the International Animal Day on October 4, to present this exhibition on the animal issue, the different approaches and its current state on the Planet.

We are aware of the importance and strength that the animal movement is currently taking in our society. The repercussions of this movement are varied and wide, with implications for Ethics, Politics, Law, Ecology, Food, Livestock, etc.

Of course, in this exhibition we do not intend to cover all these aspects that include, in addition to animalist, ecologist, pacifist and feminist research. We propose it as a presentation, introduction of this social movement and its consequences, its genesis, current state, its possible evolution and its importance in society. We leave later to discuss specific aspects of it, which allow us to study it more deeply.
