A moon bear staring out at you on a black background, text - Animal Welfare in China by Peter J. Li

We speak with researcher and author Dr Peter Li from the University of Houston-Downtown. Peter specialises in East Asian Politics whose research covers elite politics of China, Northeast Asian security, U.S.-China relations and China’s environmental and animal welfare politics. He also consults international animal welfare organizations.

In march 2021, Peter published the book ‘Animal Welfare in China’ through Sydney University Press. The book explores the key animal welfare challenges facing China now. Chapters include broader discussions of culture, history and policy, as well as deeper dives into specific issues including China’s ‘civil war’ over dogs and the controversy of bear farming.
