This book explores the interaction between anthropology and humanitarianism, focused on the organization Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).

The emphasis of the collection is on practicing anthropology within humanitarian situations, reflecting on how anthropology contributes to the development of operational response. Each chapter presents an experience of working within a particular MSF project and highlights the real issues that anthropologists of humanitarian practice confront.

The volume will be of interest to scholars from anthropology, development studies and global health, as well as to NGO staff and health professionals.
