The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $120,000 to Griffith University to support the work of Professor Deborah Cao, an expert on Chinese animal law, on advancing farm animal welfare in China. Professor Cao plans to use this grant to fund her collaboration with several Chinese animal studies academics to write papers on farm animal welfare and vegetarianism in China; to host a Farm Animal Welfare in China Symposium in Beijing in 2017; and to edit and publish a book on farm animal welfare. This is one of several grants that we are recommending to support farm animal welfare in China.

August 2017 update: we wrote more about our decision to recommend this grant, and other grants to support farm animal welfare in China, on this page.
