Languages of publication
An inspiration for the analyses included in the article are anthropologists’ experiences in the execution of a project focused on activities which constituted an offer of direct support for migrants living in Poznań. The article includes a discussion of the speciﬁ city of the cooperation between project executors and institutions which played a key role in both the stage of the project’s preparation and implementation. On the one hand, the text reﬂ ects on the EU and the ‘semantic’ inﬂ uence of EU grant programs on the perception of immigrants who are included in the category of individuals “endangered by social exclusion”. On the other hand, the article considers to the speciﬁ city of the anthropologists’ cooperation with regional and local government institutions and their representatives. I focus on the aim of this cooperation on the dilemmas connected with the involvement in practical actions and forming local policy, and on the ways in which anthropology as a discipline might beneﬁt from contact and cooperation with local governments.
