In this paper I will examine issues of advocacy in anthropology in a number of ways. I will begin by discussing terminology and then raise some of the key questions relevant to this topic. These will then be explored in depth by taking two contrasting cases where anthropologists have adopted radically different positionsabout the appropriateness of advocacy. Finally, the paper ends with some reflections on the relevance of this debate for 21st century anthropology.
