Defining assumptions globally

is it possible to define assumptions globally?

This is my (simplified) problem:
To calculate certain quantities I wrote some modules like

  cE[n,0,s]= E[n-1,0,s] Integrate[W[x,s],{s,0,1}]

(cE[0,0,s] is of course defined)

Later I would like to use for example

: [Module-Def]

Now, W might be quite complicated, so Integrate might need assumptions.
is there a better way than

: WAssumptions={}
    cE[n,0,s]= E[n-1,0,s]
: WAssumptions={a>0}
  W[x_,s_]= a ...;
: cE[n]
