Home - Membership
We invite you to become a member of the IUAES. The IUAES welcomes as members any and all anthropologists/ethnologists, wherever in the world they are based and with whichever branch of the discipline they might be interested. Students of anthropology/ethnology are also very welcome to become members. The main goal of the IUAES is to facilitate wide-ranging global exchanges between anthropologists/ethnologists in interests of the discipline's development.
Membership of the IUAES runs from 1st January to 31st December. The annual subscription is based on a member's self-declared annual income as of 1 January each year.

Statement on Finances
The financial resources obtained from the payment of dues, together with any grants received - in the past these have come mainly from UNESCO (ISSC and CIPSH) and the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU), are used to assist the Commissions in their work (publications, meetings, administration and travel), as well as to maintain the administrative structure of the IUAES itself (meetings, the production of the Newsletter, postage, travel and general administration). The success of the IUAES ultimately depends on the funding and initiatives of its members, and it is therefore important that anthropologists and academic institutions lend their support to its activities.
