The establishment of the CUA was the successful result of a long-felt need to bring together international scholars who had carried out research in urban settings and to stimulate further research in this field.

23 The proposal to establish a Commission on Urban Anthropology was enthusiastically supported by the then president of the IUAES, Cyril Belshaw. Professor Ghaus Ansari was invited to co-ordinate the preparatory consultations for the organisation of such a Commission, which led to the ~~First International Symposium on Urban Anthropology~~, held in Vienna (Austria) in 1982. Prof. Ansari was appointed chairman of the Commission and held this position until 2006. Since its affiliation, the Commission's major goals have been:</div>

31 Alongside the organisation of international symposia, the Commission's activities have included the publication of a Newsletter, which has now been replaced by a Bulletin, and the encouragement of Regional Working Groups. The Commission has a strong association with the peer-reviewed open access Journal ~~Urbanities~~ and with the Book Series "Palgrave Studies in Urban Anthropology" and, formerly, with Ashgate "Urban Anthropology Series". </div>
