About this book

'Solidarity' has received considerable scholarly attention and is central in many social justice movements. It is striking, then, that solidarity's relevance, meaning and practical implications in the context of animal protection have not been systematically explored.

This is particularly surprising given the recent so-called 'political turn' in animal ethics. Work in the political turn accepts claims about the moral status of animals and people's personal obligations towards them, but advances the field in at least two ways. First, thinkers emphasize that mutually beneficial human-animal relations cannot rely solely on personal transformation, but also require institutional transformation. Secondly, scholars claim that to meaningfully improve the lives of animals, we must not only change our political systems, but better understand various animals' own perspectives and political agency to feed into 'more-than-human politics'.

But while much work in this political turn has been done on concepts like 'justice', 'agency', 'representation', etc., only very few animal scholars have talked about 'solidarity'. And those that have, have done so only in very specific contexts and frameworks. This lack of attention is also mirrored within animal activism, where those few campaigners who have employed the term have done so only in a very loose way.

This edited collection brings together the leading thinkers in the fields of animal ethics, politics, social philosophy, world religions, and the law to explore this lacuna and thus provide the first book-length treatment of solidarity between the species.

Customer Reviews


Alasdair Cochrane is Professor of Political Theory at the University of Sheffield. His primary research interests lie in the area of 'animal politics', which involves thinking not only about how politics impacts upon and harms the lives of non-human animals, but also how the tools of political power - political ideas, structures, institutions and policies - might be harnessed to ensure that they enjoy flourishing lives. He has published 4 single-authored books, and numerous articles and chapters on the issue. His OUP book, Sentientist Politics, won the Susan Strange Best Book Prize for 2019.

Mara-Daria Cojocaru is both a philosopher and award-winning poet from Germany, affiliated as Privatdozentin with the Munich School of Philosophy, working with dogs in the UK while she develops an "animal-informed philosophy" – a blend of philosophical and creative writing that is not just about, but with and for other animals. In addition to political philosophy, philosophical pragmatism and the philosophy of emotion, animal ethics and politics are her areas of specialisation.
