The Anthropological Analysis Unit at Moesgaard

  • Anthropological analysis of human interaction and structures in your organisation and among your citizens, patients, clients or partners

The anthropologists at MANTRA explore, challenge and rethink current issues relating to human culture. Anthropological studies are based on a qualitative, open approach to human interaction and lifestyles. We always adopt a critical external perspective with a view to spotting the potential for change and improvement, based on theory about human action, organisation and social structures.
