- Presentation of specific research methodologies in anthropology and in applied anthropology, intended as committed anthropology, an anthropology that founds its methodology and its way of being on fieldwork: a continuous dialogue with “alterity” in which the only thinkable “alienity” is represented by the tekhne and by the financial markets which support and promulgate it as omnipresent and almighty verbum.
- A renewed discussion on the concepts of development and cooperation – concepts which have deeply marked the past three decades of social sciences and the current crystallization of anthropology – that is of contemporary economy. It represents an opportunity to revivify and deepen the impact of anthropological theory and to re-shape applied anthropology.
- Analysis of three case-studies in applied anthropology: 1. applied anthropology and medicine – gender and tuberculosis in Central Asia, 2. applied anthropology and law – rebuilding the justice system in Afghanistan, 3. applied anthropology and economics – credit associations and development of local markets in Ethiopia.
