We invite you to become a member of the IUAES or to renew your membership. The IUAES welcomes as members any and all anthropologists/ethnologists a nd others from cognate disciplines, 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.
IUAES Membership 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.
For those earning < £20,000 per annum (including students): £15
For those earning >= £20,000 per annum: £40
Life membership: £1,000 one off payment (i.e.25 times the maximum annual membership rate. The life membership rate does not provide for different income levels)
* Honorary Members are waived of fees.
Since 2018, membership is included in the Congress or Inter-Congress registration fees. Therefore if you are joining in order to attend the conference, you do NOT need to sign up for membership here.
If you are not attending a Congress or Inter-Congress this year, or if you wish to pay your renewal or new IUAES membership fee separately from payment of a Congress or Inter-Congress registration fee, please complete the form via the button below.
Corporate member subscriptions are annual and are normally invoiced and payable by bank transfer.

For Funding Foundations, Commercial Enterprises or similar: An amount of at least £150 p.a. but to be determined through negotiation between the member and the IUAES Executive Committee.
For National or Regional Associations and Councils (including non-Anthropology/Ethnology Associations having a cognate interest in Anthropology/Ethnology): the same Membership fee rate as applies to Association Members in the WCAA Chamber of the World Anthropological Union. These are:
Level 1 (large and strong associations): USD $1 / individual member; Cap £3850 (~USD$5000)
Level 2a (large but not strong associations): USD $0.50 per individual member; Cap £2675 (~USD$3500)
Level 2b (small but strong): USD $0.80 per individual member; Maximum £305 (~USD $400)
Level 3 (small and not so strong): USD $0.40 per individual member; Minimum £30 (~USD $40); Maximum £153 (~USD $200)
Level 4 (very limited circumstances): Token payment based on association's capacity to pay; Suggested minimum £15 (~USD$20)
Definitions of above terms for associational categories:
Large = an association with more than 500 members
Small = an association with less than 500 members
Strong = individual annual member fees greater than $50 pa or access to other funding sources (typically associations in higher income countries) Not so strong = individual annual member fees of less than $50 pa and no access to other funding (typically associations in lower income countries) Very limited circumstances = associations with very low overall income (<$500 pa) from membership fees or any other source (evidence is required)
Member = any employed member who was a paid-up member for the purpose of the preceding financial report of the association, irrespective of their income. Where fees for employed members are graded along an income-based scale or otherwise distributed across tiers, the average fee per employed member needs to be calculated. Student, retired or other non-employed members' fees are exempt and need not be included.
Cap = set (rather than calculated) maximum amounts, as stated above.
Maximum = calculated by multiplying number of members and annual member fee.

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. Detailed financial reports is available upon request from the Secretariat at s-g[at]iuaes.org.
