About us

The Latvian Association of Anthropologists (LAB) was established to unite Latvian anthropologists and create an intellectually stimulating environment in which to develop this branch of science. The association unites not only those who have studied anthropology as a specialty at the university, but also those who engage with the theories, topics and data of anthropology in their work.
