International Associacion for Cross-Cultural Psychology Congress

XXI International Associacion for Cross-Cultural Psychology Congress was hold in the town of Stellenbosch, South Africa on July, 17-21. Maxim Rudnev, associated researcher of the LCSR took a part in that event. Now he shares with us his impressions about the Congress.

Recently I participated in the Congress of International Associacion for Cross-Cultural Psychology (IACCP), which takes place biannually and gathers key figures of comparative research in different fields of psychology. Basic values studies were presented very widely at this Congress, and this is exactly what I am interested in.  

However, participants of the Congress are interested in some specific features of values research, connected with more "psychological" view on values, that unlike most studies in LCSR are focused not on sociopolitical consequences of mass values, but on onthogenesis of values. In that context I found extremely interesting a keynote lecture by Klaus Boehnke which summarized studies of value change mechanisms, both during an individual's life and inter-generational value change. Also I'd like to mention World Values Survey symposium organized by Michael Harris Bond and Franziska Deutsch, which included diefferent kinds of substantial presentations based on WVS data. 

Informal part was quite entertaining, and included several social events with African music, wine, and, of course, friendly and very fruitful conversations with colleagues from all over the world.
