"Anthropology as Social Critique. Its Public Role in the Globalized World"
This book contains chapters based on presentations and debates that were held during a panel session entitled “Anthropology as opinion-maker: a dilemma of analysis versus application” as part of the “Anthropology in the World” conference in London (June 8 – June 10, 2012). The aim of this book is to discuss the relevance of anthropological findings beyond disciplinary boundaries, and to examine the means of making these findings accessible and useful for a wider public, including decision makers. We strongly believe that the world would benefit greatly from the application of anthropological knowledge and anthropological opinions. At the same time, we, as an academic body equipped with its own professional organizations, acknowledge that anthropologists are not doing enough to make opinions and knowledge heard and understood, and thus greatly lack political influence.
