Doctors Against Animal Experiments is actively cooperating with international alliances and networks.

The European Coalition to End Animal Experiments (ECEAE)

Since 2007 Doctors Against Animal Experiments is a member of the European Coalition to End Animal Experiments (ECEAE).

The European Coalition to End Animal Experiments (ECEAE) is Europe's leading alliance peacefully campaigning on behalf of laboratory animals. Formed in 1990 by animal organisations across Europe to successfully campaign to ban cosmetics testing on animals, the Coalition now leads campaigning on all animal experimentation issues in Europe. The European Coalition draws together organisations with a range of legislative, scientific and political expertise working with parliamentarians, Commission officials and EU citizens to effect change for laboratory animals.

The ECEAE runs a range of lobbying and campaigning initiatives to ensure that laboratory animals are high on the European political agenda. Our current activities are centered on the following key priorities:

  • EU Directive 86/609
  • Maintaining the ban on cosmetics testing on animals
  • Campaigning for a ban on household products testing on animals
  • EU chemical legislation REACH
  • Promoting the use of humane, reliable, cost-effective and scientifically valid alternatives to animal experiments
  • Lobbying against the use of primates in experiments

InterNICHE - International Network for Humane Education

In the frames of our East Europe project we closely work together with InterNICHE, the International Network for Humane Education.

InterNICHE aims for a high quality, fully humane education in biological science, veterinary and human medicine. The network supports progressive science teaching and the replacement of animal experiments by working with teachers to introduce alternatives, and with students to support freedom of conscience. In Germany InterNICHE is represented by SATIS (Student's Workshop Against Animal Misuse in Education).
