Short Description:

The aim of this project is a critical review of contemporary intercultural transfer processes in medicine, focusing on
- the use (and misuse) of non-western, mostly spiritually based methods of diagnosis, therapy, and health in a "western" context
- the perception of non-European concepts of ritual and healing in regard of a historically developed background of idealization and ethnocentric rejection of foreign cultures
- the substitution of insufficiently met needs and expectations in western health care systems by importing facettes of non-western health care systems
- commercial aspects of diagnostic and therapeutic outsourcing
- indigenous knowledge and indigenous property rights
