Based at the University of Windsor, AIPARG is comprised of faculty and graduate students across disciplines who conduct research on the intersection of abuse against people and animals.

Working with the community, AIPARG aims to understand the co-occurrence of animal and interpersonal violence and advocate for change in policy and practice to better address the needs of those affected by abuse – human and animal alike.

Allison Gray, a graduate student member of AIPARG, eloquently presented the rationale for researching the connections between animal and interpersonal abuse in her 2017 SSHRC Storyteller submission. Amid very steep national competition, Allison was selected as a final 5 finalist! Congratulations!


The research and ongoing activities of AIPARG are funded in part by the Faculty of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (FAHSS) at the University of Windsor and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).
