Summary/Abstract: This paper aims at analysing the conditions of developing anthropology in the Republic of Moldova. After a general overview of the pre-1989 situation, the paper will portray the redefinition of the field since the 1990s with a focus on paradigm shifts and the building of new institutional structures. It will also consider the relationship between articulating new research topics, establishing new partnerships, and institutionalising the discipline. My assessment of its development in post-Soviet Moldova will point out the most evident issues inherited from the Soviet period and will identify opportunities of and impediments to the development of anthropology in the country since 1991.
