World Council of Anthropological Associations, WCAA (2004- )

The World Council of Anthropological Associations (WCAA) was created in 2004 with the purpose of overcoming anthropology’s shortcomings, namely the fact that the discipline has not always been a faithful mirror of unity in diversity insofar as, until recently, the anthropologists of a few privileged nations have dominated the process of building global knowledge. The WCAA provides a global platform for free communication and democratic participation in the spirit of the new paradigm of “World Anthropologies”.
