The Department of Cultural Anthropology and Development Studies focuses its research and teaching on the interaction between cultural diversity and inequality. This is complex and its analysis is complicated by the fact that people's cultural identity is not always clearly distinguished in social debate from their position on the socio-economic ladder. For this reason, the department focuses on the study of cultural diversity and inequality in discussions and discourses as well as in social practices.


We study the interaction between diversity and inequality from different disciplinary perspectives, based on the collaboration between anthropology and development studies. The research programme is embedded in the research institute Radboud Social Cultural Research (RadboudSCR).
