The Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland (RAI) is the world’s longest-established scholarly association dedicated to the furtherance of anthropology (the study of humankind) in its broadest and most inclusive sense. The Institute is a non-profit-making registered charity and is entirely independent, with a Director and a small staff accountable to the Council, which in turn is elected annually from the Fellowship. It has a Royal Patron in the person of HRH The Duke of Gloucester KG, GCVO. The Anthropology Library and Research Centre, located within the British Museum, has more than 120,000 books and pamphlets and 4,000 journal titles, and its catalogue can be researched online. The RAI organises talks and events including a biennial film festival.
