IAPS Networks

The Networks are interest and research groups formed by IAPS members. They carry out debates, discussion groups, publications, often posses their own website and organise symposia and conferences.

For example, in 2013, the IAPS-CSBE, IAPS-Housing, and IAPS-Sustainability Networks jointly organised a symposium in A Coruña, Spain with the theme “Sustainable environments in a changing global context Identifying opportunities for innovative spaces and practices in contexts of crisis”.


Young researchers are encouraged to become members of the IAPS networks and take part in their meetings and activities.

Any post-graduate student willing to join in a network can send an email to the Network’s Convener(s) with a cc. to the member of the Board/IAPS Networks Coordinator.
