Children, adolescents & animals research
Children, adolescents and animals research (caar), is a group of researchers, graduates and doctoral students led by Professor Jo Williams and supported by Dr Janine Muldoon. We explore all aspects of relationships between children, adolescents and animals, and work closely with animal welfare organisations.
Our team recently had a paper published in the Journal of Interpersonal Violence. The paper was based on a qualitative study of children’s accounts of cruelty to animals, carried out by Laura Wauthier. The research forms part of an evaluation of the Animal Guardians programme.
