THE STORY:

http://ieet.org/index.php/IEET/RNHP

To support George Dvorsky and his network of activists and scholars in promoting the idea that some non-human animals (beginning with great apes and cetaceans) meet the criteria of legal personhood and thus are deserving of specific rights and protections.

Specifically, through the Rights of Non-Human Persons program, the IEET will strive to:

- Investigate and refine definitions of personhood and those criteria sufficient for the recognition of non-human persons.

- Facilitate and support further research in the neurosciences for the improved understanding and identification of those cognitive processes, functions and behaviors that give rise to personhood.

- Educate and persuade the public on the matter, spread the word, and increase awareness of the idea that some animals are persons.

- Produce evidence and fact-based argumentation in favor of non-human animal personhood to support the cause and other like-minded groups and individuals.
