Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics

The Ferrater Mora Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics was founded in England in 2006 by Andrew Linzey, a member of the Faculty of Theology at the University of Oxford. Other founding fellows were Ara Paul Barsam, Mark H. Bernstein, Scott Cowdell, Susan Pigott, and Mark Rowlands. The centre is named after the Spanish/Catalan philosopher, José Ferrater Mora.[1] or Josep Ferrater i Mora (in Catalan).

The centre promotes ethical concern for animals through academic study and public debate, and aims to create a global association of academics willing to advance the ethical case for animals.[1] To that end, it publishes an academic journal, the Journal of Animal Ethics, jointly with the University of Illinois.[2] It has also established an animal ethics series with Palgrave MacMillan.[3] The centre held an International Conference on the Relationship between Animal Abuse and Human Violence at Keble College, Oxford in 2007.[4]

Linzey is the centre's director. Advisers include Stephen R. L. Clark, Roger Crisp, Roger Fouts, Robert Garner, A. C. Grayling, Hilda Kean, Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, Bernard Rollin and Steven M. Wise. Honorary fellows include J. M. Coetzee.[1]
