Why Join IACCP?

"Rendering Borders Obsolete was the motto of the 19th International Congress of IACCP in 2008. No continent or country, nor any epistemological approach must be converted into a fortress. The motto of the 2008 Bremen congress stands for an ever-increasing free exchange of ideas and people in IACCP and beyond."

Klaus Boehnke, Bremen, Germany
