TOC: Anthropology in Action - Journal for Applied Anthropology in Policy and Practice

Dear Colleague,

The articles in this issue of Anthropology in Action range from an exploration of local agency in development anthropology to a call for a review of GIPA-based policies. Possible frameworks for evaluating well-being as an indicator of culturally sustainable development are considered and the classic techno-practice perspective in medical design anthropology is broadened.
