The World Council of Anthropological Associations (WCAA) is a network of national and international associations that aims to promote worldwide communication and cooperation in anthropology.
Its primary objectives are:
- to promote the discipline of anthropology in an international context
- to promote cooperation and the sharing of information among world anthropologists
- to promote jointly organized events of scientific debate, and
- co-operation in research activities and dissemination of anthropological knowledge.
For more detailed information about these objectives, read the WCAA constitution.

Consisting of reprints of selected articles from WCAA member association journals, this new journal aims at pluralising the dissemination of anthropological knowledge on a global level.
