WHAT WE DO

Understanding the anthropology of policy

The anthropology of policy examines the processes and effects of policy-making through an anthropological lens. It is significant for practicing anthropologists and graduate students as it provides critical insights into how policies are formulated, implemented, and experienced by different communities. This field bridges the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical application, enabling anthropologists to contribute meaningfully to policy debates and development.
