IACC/IAIR 2025 Joint Conference


Participate in an exciting collaboration between IAIR AND IACCP in 2025. We aim to bring people together from all around the globe and across disciplines for a connected and empowering experience celebrating all things intercultural and cross-cultural in the Sunshine State of Australia.


Dear Members of IAIR and IACCP,

It is with great pleasure that we announce the first joint meeting of the International Academy of Intercultural Relations Biennial Conference and the International Association for Cross-Cultural Psychology Regional Congress in Brisbane, Australia, 2025. Having been a long-time member of both organisations, I have often hoped that a time would arise where we would all be able to come together. I am fortunate that many others understood this vision and have supported this event, and am pleased to invite you all to Brisbane, Australia for this conference.

The theme for this joint conference will be "Bridging Intercultural Divides in a Digitally Connected World". This theme highlights the importance of researchers and practitioners coming together across disciplines, traditions, and geographical divides to build trust and connection among diverse peoples. A key objective of both IAIR and IACCP is to promote intercultural understanding and take an evidence based approach to contemporary risks and opportunities in a globalised world. Our conference theme highlights how relationships are challenged, but also enabled by digital transformation and seeks to highlight new and emerging topics of interest in the fields of intercultural relations and cross-cultural psychology. Abstract submissions will be opening very soon, and we look forward to welcoming you to sunny Brisbane, Australia, to take part in this exciting meeting of the minds!

Conference Co-Chair Dr Jaimee Stuart
