Livestock farming and society

Area 4. Study of the relationships between livestock farming and society with respect to health and welfare


Research questions

  • To support the emergence of solutions that favour transitions towards new livestock systems that take into account the challenges of welfare and health.
  • To design projects on a production sector or a livestock system for which societal questions, regarding the challenges of welfare and health, are particularly significant. One of the goals will be to analyse the societal controversies regarding the acceptability of livestock farming and meat consumption, public policies in favour of agroecological transition and the adoption of new livestock systems. 
  • The projets may include scientists from different disciplines as well as stakeholders : main actors of the sector, representatives of the civil society and decision-makers (ex : from the Ministry of Agriculture).
