Moving Animals: animals are also globalising.

Globalisation is undeniable. People, goods and information are moving around the world at an increasing pace. But what about animals? Do they also cross national and continental borders and how does that work? And how have people historically been involved in these movements? How have they tried to understand and manage animal movements? These are urgent questions for historian and researcher Dr Raf de Bont of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. With the Vici grant of 1.5 million euros that was awarded for the Moving Animals project, he can search for the answers with a team of three people over the next five years.
