Animal Welfare

About: Animal Welfare

Onderstepoort (Faculty of Veterinary Science) has embarked on a twinning project with the University of Teramo (Italy) to establish an OIE Animal Welfare Center in South Africa. This center is required to do animal welfare research. A team will be established that can continue and promote animal welfare research as required by the OIE center (if you are interested).  

Study area: Animal Welfare

Qualitative and quantitative research will be conducted. Since qualitative research is not well established in veterinary science, trusted partners (including the Centre for the Study of Resilience) will be collaborating in order to establish qualitative research at Onderstepoort. A proposed PhD study will investigate the changing opinion of the media over the past few decades with regard to animal welfare via context analysis.
