About Us


We promote and facilitate intercultural education, training and research through professional interchange.


  • Committed to intercultural understanding, the Society's membership promotes:
  • Mutual understanding of the values and beliefs of people from different cultural backgrounds.
  • Non-political avenues for contact between people who share a common interest in the development of intercultural awareness.
  • The intercultural field by identifying and clarifying issues and by preparing members to work constructively on these.
  • Contacts among educators, trainers, researchers and those whose positions or interests involve them with people from another culture.
  • Exchange and dissemination of information and knowledge.
  • Professional development.

Therefore, the objectives of the Society are to:

  • Stimulate the growth of knowledge and skills in the fields of international and intercultural relations.
  • Foster the professional development of theoreticians and practitioners in these and related fields.
  • Promote the effectiveness of the public, private, and voluntary sectors for dealing positively with intercultural and related issues with which they are increasingly confronted.
  • Disseminate and exchange information on concepts and methods related to intercultural and multi-cultural issues and practice.
