World Anthropological Union

A global hub for anthropology

The World Anthropological Union (WAU) is an inclusive, cooperative forum that invigorates transnational anthropologies. WAU is the interface that unites the missions of the IUAES and the WCAA, galvanizing person-to-person international dialogues and stimulating cooperative exchange among anthropological associations. As a member of the ISC and the CIPSH, WAU represents the ethical and scientific values of the field as the discipline's primary international organization.

Our Priorities:

To facilitate the conversation and collaboration among anthropologists and epistemic traditions around the world

To bring awareness of global anthropological thought to international science and policy discussions.

To reflexively shape more inclusive approaches to world problems and their solutions.

The International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences (IUAES)
Is a global organization of scientists and institutions working in the fields of anthropology and ethnology, but also of interest to archaeologists and linguists.
The World Council of Anthropological Associations (WCAA)

Is a network of national, regional and international associations that aims to promote worldwide communication and cooperation in anthropology.
