  1. “That’s the Way We’Ve Always Done It”: A Social Practice Analysis of Farm Animal Welfare in Alberta.Emilie M. Bassi, Ellen Goddard & John R. Parkins - 2019 - Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 32 (2):335-354.

    In this paper I defend a theory of welfare rights for nonhuman animals. I do this by demonstrating that a well-established framework for protecting the interests of farm animals, the ‘Five Freedoms of Animal Welfare’, is already functioning just as a set of rights.
