DUQUE-PARAMO, María Claudia. Applied anthropology in Colombia. Perspectives and purposes on the basis of an experience in childhood and migrations. univ.humanist. [online]. 2010, n.70, pp. 171-185. ISSN 0120-4807.
This paper puts forward a notion of applied anthropology incorporating both a critical analysis of cultural diversity and intervention and policy formulation, which help to solve the problems communities we work with face. In order to do this, at a first time we revise several concepts and purposes on applied anthropology in the North American and Colombian contexts. Then, an experience on migrations and childhood is reported, including research, intervention and networking. Finally, a third moment articulates the elements discussed in a final reflection on the relationship between theory and practice in the field of applied anthropology.
