This article has sought to shed light on processes of inclusion and exclusion in Norwegian mediated public spheres. Sindre Bangstad has argued that contemporary conceptions of freedom of expression among liberal media editors in Norway are suggestive of a hierarchisation of human rights in which freedom of expression is posited as an absolute and inalienable right,overriding all other rights and concerns, such as concerns relating to rights to non-discrimination.

In a chapter in this new book about food research Marianne Lien and Eivind Jacobsen argue that marketers have worked hard to understand and shape the buying practices of urban shoppers, acknowledging how their diverse, segmented and unruly behaviour has changed over time. The authors explore how marketing emerged out economics as a field of knowledge, how it has filled the growing distance between buyers and sellers and they look at some of its successes and failures.

Animal domestication is a dynamic and open-ended process which potentially transforms both the animal and its surroundings. Using the case of Atlantic salmon, John Law and Marianne Lien describes a series of scientific and fish-farming practices, based on fieldwork in West Norway. They show how different salmon are being enacted within those different practices, and explore the precarious choreographies of those practices, and the ways in which they enact agency and also work to generate Otherness. Their article is part of the project 'Newcomers to the farm, Atlantic salmon between the wild and the industrial'.

Land continues to be a contentious issue in much of sub-Saharan Africa. Recently, a new form of conflict over land has received much attention. Knut G. Nustad and Frode Sundnes claim that in the case they study, the nature of the land itself is at stake. The wetland area, which served as hunting grounds in the past, was transformed into productive fields. This struggle over the nature of the land lies at the heart of the controversy surrounding the land claim.

Cecilia G. Salinas i en artikkel i Norsk antropologisk tidsskrift drøfter sammenhengen mellom nyliberale økonomiske reformer og begrepet håp i forhold til tremasseindustrien i Uruguay. Artikkelen er basert på en empirisk studie av etableringen av en finsk tremassefabrikk i en landsby i Uruguay. Hun argumenterer for viktigheten av begrepet håp som analytisk verktøy i studier av kapitalisme, og understreker at håp har en narrativ struktur.

This chapter contributed by Knut Gunnar Nustad discusses notions of 'property' and 'rights' in the context of South Africa's land reform programme. Both concepts carry with them a heavy ideological baggage. This is evident in the policies on land reform, which have sought to reach a compromise between different and often contradictory histories of both rights and property.

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, Ruthe Prince and Paul Wenzel Geissler participate in this overviewarticle of HIV science in western Kenya.

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».

REDD-arbeid skal bidra til å redusere klimaendringene ved å bygge opp et insentivsystem der rike land skal kompensere utviklingsland økonomisk for å redusere CO2-utslipp fra skogsektoren.

Sindre Bangstad is giving 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"
