The Anthropological Association of Ireland exists to promote social and cultural anthropology within Ireland. Our activities involve the organisation of two conferences or workshops per year and the annual publication of the Irish Journal of Anthropology. We also provide professional anthropological support in Ireland for those conducting anthropological research, in the form of our ethical guidelines.
