Alli S.M.Abad

Alli S.M.Abad studied political science at the University of Hamburg and considers themselves an activist and political theorist. Alli wishes to contribute to a growing movement of political theory dealing with the issue of political representation of nonhuman animals. They believe that political theory can help spark debates and ideas on how nonhuman animals could be represented politically. They have organized several tutorials at the University of Hamburg discussing political visions from political theory regarding the issues of establishing political representation of animals.

At the International Animal Rights Conference 2023 in Luxembourg, Alli held the presentation "A call for political representation of nonhuman animals – from the perspective of political theory" and collaborated with the German organization Animal Society in their joint workshop "Reforming democracy for animals". At the Animal Politics World Conference by Animal Politics Foundation in December 2023, Alli talked about the potential of political theory in front of major European animal parties. Currently, Alli is involved in organizing workshops regarding the political representation of nonhuman animals in Germany and developing campaign strategies for establishing the political representation of animals.
