Event description
Applying social network analysis to animal welfare science, where are we and what happens next?

About this event

Social network analysis (SNA) is a powerful tool to quantify direct social interactions between individuals and indirect connections through third parties, and to quantify overall network structure. Many aspects of animal welfare depend on social interactions, and so SNA is an ideal tool for researchers and practitioners to use to bring welfare benefits. However, the use of SNA is in its infancy in the fields of applied ethology and welfare science. The goals of the workshop are (1) to introduce animal welfare researchers to the concepts, methods, pitfalls, and potential of SNA; (2) to provide case studies from diverse areas of animal welfare science to illustrate the current state-of-the-art in application of SNA; and (3) to collaboratively identify animal welfare issues and research questions that SNA is best suited to advance.
