The 24th Congress of the International Association for Cross-Cultural Psychology (IACCP 2018) took place earlier this month in the City of Guelph in Canada (July 1th – 5th ).
Canada was a perfect place to bring the IACCP congress to. It was the first country in the world to adopt multiculturalism as an official policy in 1971. In synch with this policy, the Congress chosen theme was: “Multiculturalism in a Global Perspective: Benefits and Challenges”.
The Congress was held at the University of Guelph campus, only 90 km from Toronto, Guelph is a vibrant city of 120,000 people, known for its 19th Century limestone architecture, high quality life, beer micro-breweries, and art and music festivals.
About 550 scholars, from 54 countries, working in different parts of the world attended the congress, presented their researches, exchanged ideas, and networked. Close to 1,000 high quality abstracts were submitted resulting in a dynamic and interesting array of presentations which stimulated intellectual discussions, networking, while igniting future research.
