International Academic Advisory Board for IAFOR

January 2018

I’ve been invited onto the International Academic Advisory Board for three years for the Japanese research organisation and think-tank, The International Academic Forum.

I will be working with colleagues from Harvard, Keisen University, Japan, Tarumanagare University, Indonesia etc. I will be giving a number of keynote addresses at two of their international conferences in Japan in March, including the Asian Conference on Psychology & the Behavioral Sciences (ACP), which is one of the longest established and best attended events organised by The International Academic Forum (IAFOR).

‘ACP brings together delegates from many different national, cultural and linguistic backgrounds in the Kansai region of Japan to present new research and exchange ideas. This exceptional platform welcomes speakers and delegates working in any area of psychology, from academics and clinical psychologists to psychiatrists and therapists, in both the private and public sectors, for challenging debate and stimulating discussions around the latest concepts and newest approaches.

IAFOR's conferences are encouraging and nurturing environments where ideas can be shared and tested, where research synergies and collaborations can be formed, and where some of the biggest names in the field have the opportunity to interact with up-and-coming young faculty members.

IAFOR’s psychology conferences are organised in partnership with some of the world’s most reputable institutions, including Birkbeck, University of London (UK), University of Sussex (UK), Waseda University (Japan), Moscow State University (Russia), Barcelona University (Spain) and Virginia Tech (USA), and feature programmes developed by leading academics to ensure both timeliness and academic rigour.

The Asian Conference on Psychology & the Behavioral Sciences (ACP) is held alongside The Asian Conference on Ethics, Religion & Philosophy (ACERP). These two events are scheduled simultaneously to maximise opportunities for interdisciplinary discussion and interaction. Registration for either conference allows participants to attend sessions in the other.’
