Animal, meat and society: the relation is dying out

The symposium organised by CIV Viande, Sciences et Société on May, 31st 2016 at the Institut Pasteur in Paris is aimed at raising a sociological debate about the links connecting men with farm animals and meat, keeping in mind the evolution of society. Whilst it appeared that these links have grown more distant, the debate has allowed exploring how the relation is dying out, how and if this deterioration is rather superficial or deep.
