"I was interested in studying this master to have a full knowledge on the status that animals have in the different legislations. The master represents an area of knowledge and an approach to the reality of the most relevant issues to understand social movements in defense of animal rights. This gave me the possibility to know more about the regulation of animal life and about the distances between animals and humans. This distances prevents us from knowing animals thoroughly, impeding us to create empathic connections because we only contemplate them as commodities and not as subjects of rights. "
