International Association for Cross-Cultural Psychology Congress

Sunday July 1, 2018 to Thursday July 5, 2018
Guelph, ON

This congress brings together international scholars who investigate the nexus of culture and psychology from diverse perspectives. We invite submissions of symposia, papers, rapid papers posters, and discussion forum in all areas of culture and psychology.

The conference theme is Multiculturalism in a Global Perspective: Benefits and Challenges. The theme of the conference reflects Canada’s history as the first country in the world to adopt multiculturalism as an official policy in 1971. Multiculturalism also reflects psycho-social principles that when all ethnicities and cultures are encouraged to share their language and heritage and have opportunities to interact with each other on a level playing field, such contact usually leads to greater mutual understanding and acceptance. Creating barriers between groups and individuals reinforces ignorance, and leads to mistrust and hostility. In other words, rejection breeds rejection; acceptance breeds acceptance. We encourage submissions that are pertinent to our general theme (i.e., multiculturalism) and specific themes (e.g., ethnicity, gender, health, peace, etc.), see list of conference topics on the submission site.
