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).
We are associated with several publications, including the bimonthly Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, the online teaching resource Online Readings in Psychology and Culture, 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, and the Early Career Award.
