Why are people different – what do they have in common? What is the local effect of globalisation? How are conflicts caused and solved? How do children and young people in other societies live? What are the social and cultural consequences of natural catastrophes? 

Cultural and Social Anthropology tackles these and similar questions through field work on the ground as well as by comparing cultures. Current situations and developments are equally as interesting as historical background and investigations of the relationship between native and foreign culture.
