The International Association for Cross-Cultural Psychology (IACCP) was founded in 1972 and has a membership of over 800 persons in more than 65 countries. The aims of the Association are to facilitate communication among persons interested in a diverse range of issues involving the intersection of culture and psychology. IACCP is affiliated with the International Union of Psychological Science (IUPsyS).
IACCP holds international Congresses every two years and regional conferences in most years. The next international Congress will be in South Africa in 2012. The next regional conference will be in Los Angeles, California in 2013.
We are associated with several publications, including the bimonthly Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, the magazine/ newsletter Cross-Cultural Psychology Bulletin, and conference proceedings. Membership fees are based on annual gross income.
The IACCP sponsors the Harry and Pola Triandis Doctoral Thesis Award, given for outstanding dissertations in any area of culture and psychology.
Special Interest Groups
The new 2010 Constitution of IACCP provides for the creation of Special Interest Groups (SIGs). Bylaws for creation and administration of SIGs are found here.
