IALP COMMITTEES AND YOU

The IALP 14 committees are a key element of the IALP. The committees of the organization address scientific, educational and professional issues from a broad global and multicultural perspective.

These various perspectives come together within the committee framework of the organization and enrich and extend scientific inquiry and professional practice. The work of the committees is shared through publications, conferences, composia and will play a key role within the 2023 World Congress programme in Auckland.

Each of the committees deals with a critical area of science and practice.

Each month we will focus on a committee to provide you with a little insight and learning about what the committee does, how you can get involved and what to expect @ IALP 2023!
