Politics and Animals is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that explores the human-animal relationship from the vantage point of political science and political theory. It hosts international, multidisciplinary research and debate — conceptual and empirical — on the consequences and possibilities that human-animal relations have for politics and vice versa.
Politics and Animals publishes articles on a rolling basis within the current issue. Articles accepted for publication are added continuously to the current issue until that issue closes, ensuring the fastest possible turnaround times for authors. We are currently accepting submissions.
