Summary This book contains chapters based on presentations and debates that were held during a panel session entitled 'Anthropology as Opinion-Maker: A Dilemma of Analysis versus Application' as part of the 'Anthropology in the World' conference in London (June 8-10, 2012). The aim of this book is to discuss the relevance of anthropological findings beyond disciplinary boundaries and to examine means of making these findings accessible and useful for a wider public, including decision makers. The book is founded on the belief that the world would benefit greatly from the application of anthropological knowledge and anthropological opinions and the concern that anthropologists are not doing enough to make their expertise heard and understood.
