Antroperspektiv takes readers behind the scenes of contemporary events to offer a deeper understanding of our complex and diverse world. Our writers are anthropologists with fieldwork experience amongst the people and places that often appear in news media and public debates in Sweden, and globally. In other cases, they have knowledge of subjects that usually remain in the shadows of public awareness, but that are nonetheless critical for understanding culture, politics and everyday life in Sweden, and elsewhere.
