Welcome to the Animal and Interpersonal Abuse Research Group!

AIPARG is composed of faculty and graduate students at the University of Windsor conducting research on aspects of the intersection of abuse against people and animals.

This interdisciplinary group of researchers is working with the community to first understand the interconnections, and then advocate for change in policy and practice to better address the needs of all those affected by abuse – human and animal alike.

Visit the Our Members section to learn more about the amazing researchers who are a part of our team, as well as their past research and publications. You will also find details on the exciting research being conducted by our members in the Current Research section.

One of our mandates at AIPARG is to foster connections between academia and the broader service community. If you have suggestions of research that needs to be done, questions that you need answered, or simply want to let us know what is going on in your community, we would love to hear from you! Send us an email at aiparg@uwindsor.ca.

​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).
