Akronymet REDD står for «Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation in developing countries». På norsk altså «Redusere utslipp fra avskoging og skogforringelse i utviklingsland».

Recent ethnographies of clinical research in Africa have described the impotance of "relatedness" to the successful conduct of trials. They have also revealed the tensions between such relatedness and the scentific and ethical rules of clinical trial work, and at the risks of mixing professional and private, erasing the "ordered separartions upon which formal ethics and scientific evidence rest". Among other colleagues, Ruth Prince and Paul Wenzel Geissler participate in this overviewarticle of HIV science in western Kenya.

Sindre Bangstad gives an historical overview of political experiences which can be connected with attitudes of xenohphobia in Norway. One of his observations is that "it is not white Norwegians of working-class background in Oslo East who hold the most negative views of immigrants and minorities in Norway. Those white Norwegians who are most likely to hold the most negative views of immigrants and minorities are in fact those least likely to have everyday contact with people of immigrant and minority background"

Unni Wikan has spent more time in sustained fieldwork in more societies than any other anthropologist whom I know, and these essays are the connective tissue among her most substantial work. They demonstrate her theoretical acuity in defining an approach that always places human experience first. As a result, she develops attractive, balanced, pragmatic views of culture, relativism, and the tendency in cultural anthropology, at least, to emphasize difference over the coherence of human experience in whichever culture and society it is engaged. They are exemplars and a test, as well, of just that approach which understands that common humanity is to be found anywhere, though complicated by distinctive cultural orientations to the expression of personhood.

I 1988 publiserte Elisabeth L’orange Fürst den banebrytende studien Kvinner i Akademia, der hun fant et mønster som tydet på at kvinner ble utsatt for forskjellsbehandling i ansettelsen til vitenskapelige stillinger i akademia. Det var ikke like populært overalt. I dette essayet, et noe bearbeidet muntlig foredrag, forteller Fürst om reaksjoner hun fikk – og om refleksjoner hun har gjort seg i ettertid.

Jon Henrik Ziegler Remme diskuterer hvordan ba’i blant ifugao,Filippinene, ikke er stabile ontologiske entiteter, men veksler mellom to måter å eksistere på: potensialitet og aktualitet.  Korrekte relasjoner til ba'i er livsviktig for mennekskene og kan bare håndteres gjennom å inngå i utvekslinsrelasjoner med dem. Utveksling av griser og andre offer mellom mennesker og ba’i  foregår i ritualer hvor ba’iene blir aktualisert som empirisk tilstedeværende personer. På denne måten skapes en felles sosialitet mellom mennekser og ba’i.

In his review article Sindre Bangstad refers to Jeremy Waldrons  defense of the regulation of hate speech positions itself within a liberal framework concerned with the balancing of individual rights.

 -With The Harm in Hate Speech, Prof. Jeremy Waldron (New York University School of Law and All Souls College, Oxford) has simply written the most balanced, moderate and eloquent defense of laws restricting hate speech to date. Whether politicians, legislators and academics will be prepared to engage honestly and reflectively with his arguments remain to be seen.
