Since 1984 the International Association for Intercultural Education (IAIE) has brought together professional educators interested in diversity and equity issues in education. This is defined quite broadly, and includes intercultural education, multi-cultural education, anti-racist education, human rights education, active citizenship, inclusive education, conflict-resolution, bi-lingual and multi-lingualism issues, gender and LGBTQ issues, etc.
The IAIE publishes the academic journal Intercultural Education (Routledge Publishers) 6 times a year. It also organizes annual conferences, seminars for pre-service and in-service teachers, participates in international projects, and conducts project evaluation. Board members are involved in research around multiple themes that impact society today.
