Lobbying for Animals

  • Robert Garner


Whether or not it is deemed to be worthwhile, the fact remains that the animal protection movement has increasingly sought to engage in conventional lobbying activities. The aim of this chapter is to document the nature of this activity. In order to enable a comparison with the animal protection movement’s adversaries, a set of categories similar to those adopted in Chapter 2 is utilized. That is, following a raw count of the groups involved, an attempt is made to identify the most important and influential groups, examine their organizational resources and establish the degree of sectorization evident in their working practices.
