In recent decades international development has grown into a world-shaping industry. What role can anthropological knowledge play in shaping policy and practice? And how can anthropologists communicate effectively to humanitarian and development organizations whose work spans continents? This panel considers the possibilities and limits for anthropologists wishing to communicate with international governmental and non-governmental development organisations. 

 

------------------------------
This series of monthly webinars is an opportunity to promote anthropology's unique contribution to understanding policy-making and advocacy and to consider how, what, where and when anthropology should communicate. The aim of the series is to encourage anthropologists to engage with different audiences, settings and contexts and, in doing so, to influence policy-makers and practice.
