International Association for Cross Cultural Psychology

The IACCP was founded in 1972 to facilitate communication among people interested in a diverse range of issues involving culture and psychology.

Commitment to Science and Compassion: IACCP's Values in a Diverse and Complex World

The International Association for Cross-Cultural Psychology is a highly diverse scientific society committed to advancing our understanding of the intersections of psychology and culture. We prioritize the application of scientific methods to deepen our insights into the human condition and to contribute to a more compassionate world for every individual. We reject violence, including terrorism, as a means to resolve interpersonal and international conflicts. We believe that all lives hold equal worth, transcending the many collective and individual identities that distinguish us. We extend our heartfelt sympathies to those who endure physical and emotional suffering, including our members and all those affected by violence, and the increasingly frequent natural and human-induced disasters.
