The welfare and flourishing of animals is now enshrined in national and international law. But what should we do when cultural or religious traditions appear to conflict with current ideas about animal welfare? How does globalization affect the scale and type of animal exploitation? In a world where animal rights are often used as a cover for racism, how can we advocate for animals without reinstating cultural imperialism?
