Anthropology and Public Policy
Examines the way "policy" has become an increasingly central organising principle in contemporary societies, shaping the way we live, act and think. Drawing on anthropological and sociological theories of power, governance and subjectivity, it explores how policy creates new categories of individuals such as "citizens", "nationals", "criminals" and "deviants", and the influence policy plays in the way individuals construct themselves as subjects.
