Citizenship, Identity and Globalization

The minor Citizenship, Identity and Globalization (Burgerschap, Identiteit en Mondialisering)  offers an excellent preparation for the Master's degree programme Cultural Anthropology: Sustainable Citizenship.

In this Master's degree programme, you use theoretical analyses, case studies and ethnographic findings to gain knowledge and insight into citizen's initiatives in the areas of sustainable society, climate change, renewable resources, food security and safety, health, care, sociocultural integration and participation.

Working from the anthropological tradition of comparative ethnography, attention is paid to cultural diversity and differences based on imbalances of power, ethnicity, class, gender, age, health etc. in order to identify issues related to active citizenship and sustainable society.
