Abstract

El objetivo de este estudio exploratorio y preliminar es identificar el perfil del vegano activista en España por ser, dentro del movimiento de liberación animal, el grupo más comprometido. A través de encuestas online se han analizado variables socioeconómicas, aspectos ideológicos y emocionales, el proceso de conversión y sus estrategias de activismo. Los resultados son muy similares a los estudios conducidos con anterioridad, principalmente en Estados Unidos de América, sobre los activistas de protección animal. El trabajo concluye con la exposición de recomendaciones dirigidas a las organizaciones animalistas, empresas y poderes públicos. The main objective of this study is to identify the vegan activist profile in Spain, vegans being the most committed group within the animal liberation movement. Through online questionnaires, we analyzed sociodemographic characteristics, ideological and emotional aspects of the participants, their process of conversion, as well as their preferences regarding activism strategies. The findings are very similar to previous studies about animal rights activists, especially those conducted in the United States. The paper concludes with recommendations aimed at animal organizations, companies and governments.
