About this book


In this volume, leading public anthropologists examine paths towards public engagement and discuss their experiences with engaged anthropology in arenas such as the media, international organizations, courtrooms, and halls of government, on topics ranging from migration to cultural understanding, justice, development aid, ethnic conflict, war, and climate change. Using hands-on experiences and case studies, this book illustrates the potential efficacy of an anthropology that engages with critical social and political issues.
