The International Society for Economics and Social Sciences of Animal Health (ISESSAH) was formed at the final NEAT-meeting with the intention to carry on the work of NEAT and to include the field of social science in veterinary related issues.
ISESSAH aims to improve animal health and welfare policies, programme and projects through more nuanced use of concepts and tools available in economics and social science disciplines. In the process it will provide opportunities for animal health professionals globally to achieve wider societal benefits from animals in society.
One of the main activity of ISESSAH will be the organization of scientific meetings. The Inaugural Meeting of ISESSAH was held on March 27 and 28 2017 in Aviemore, Scotland. During the inaugural meeting in Aviemore details of the society and membership were discussed jointly. Details on the decisions made will be communicated soon.
Currently the following persons are associated with the society:
- Jonathan Rushton
