For all the diversity of views within the animal protection
movement, there is a surprising consensus about the need for more
severe criminal justice interventions against animal abusers. More
prosecutions and longer sentences, it is argued, will advance the
status of animals in law and society. Breaking from this mold,
Professor Justin Marceau demonstrates that a focus on 'carceral
animal law' puts the animal rights movement at odds with other
social justice movements, and may be bad for humans and animals
alike. Animal protection efforts need to move beyond cages and
towards systemic solutions if the movement hopes to be true to its
own defining ethos of increased empathy and resistance to social
oppression. Providing new insights into how the lessons of criminal
justice reform should be imported into the animal abuse context,
Beyond Cages is a valuable contribution to the literature on animal
welfare and animal rights law.
