Animal Party Politics in Parliament

  • Simon Otjes
Part of the The Palgrave Macmillan Animal Ethics Series book series (PMAES)


Most contributions to this volume analyse animal politics from a theoretical perspective (see, for instance, Arias-Maldanado, this volume; Wissenburg, this volume; Flanders this volume). This chapter, like that of Svärd (this volume) looks at the practice of animal welfare politics. This analysis looks at the Party for the Animals (Partij voor de Dieren, PvdD), which is the first and, so far, only animal advocacy party to win seats in a national parliament.
