IAPS Association - People Environment Studies Association (External organisation)

Activity: MembershipMembership of board


I am member of the IAPS BOARD since 2016. https://iaps-association.org/about-iaps/iaps_board/

Although IAPS was formally constituted in 1981, the emergence of the Association is earlier. Since the 1960s, there have been numerous developments in the field which started with the shared concerns of psychologists and architects who founded “Architectural Psychology”. Today the field has become more diversified and is often referred to as “People-Environment Studies” with theoretical and empirical contributions from several disciplines and professions. It is worthwhile recalling that IAPS was founded and has developed owing to the devotion and commitment of people who have given their time for unpaid work as an elected Board member, as a coordinator of an IAPS network, as a contributor or editor of an issue of the newsletter or bulletin, as an organizer of an international conference, a symposium, or a young researchers workshop. The last decades of IAPS shows that there is a need for an international association that serves as an open forum for the sharing of ideas and research results by people concerned with people-environment relations from all continents of the world irrespective of their ethnic origin, their religious beliefs or their political affiliations.
