Solidarity is one of today's main challenges. Highly volatile flows of people, goods and ideas, as well as the restructuring of markets and governing institutions have led to a high degree of global interconnectedness. This, in turn, is intertwined with a diversification of national populations. At the same time, neoliberal reforms of state and society across the globe rewrite social contracts between people and states, while global links crisscross national borders and challenge established conceptions of socio-political relations and structures. Climate change and the scarcity of natural resources constitute a global predicament. How, in this volatile context, is solidarity shaped and practiced? And to whom does solidarity extend and who does it exclude?

The Master's programme in Anthropology and Development Studies – with the theme Shifting Solidarities – is at the cutting-edge of both social and cultural anthropology and development studies. The issue of solidarity in a neoliberal, postcolonial world encompasses a wide array of anthropological and development questions.

A great part of the programme consists of taking a role and actively participate in various series of debates throughout the year – under the title 'Global' – held by internationally reputed academics in the field of development. Not to mention, most of the students use the possibility of doing their Master's thesis research projects abroad, because of university's extensive network of international partners, located in China, Chile, South Africa, Balkans and many more countries.
