The Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful: Ethics and Hunting


The subject of hunting is characterised by opposing and increasingly divergent views as to its moral acceptability, and how policy and regulation should deal with it. This thesis argues, however, that policy, particularly at the international level, is needed to address this divergence, in order to prevent negative consequences, whether they be conservation or economic outcomes. It utilises philosophical perspectives to try to understand the background and various positions of the different stakeholders engaged in and affected by hunting, and the complex relationship between hunting and environmental ethics.
