On 24th July 2012, during the International Congress of Psychology (ICP) in Cape Town, South Africa, Wiley-Blackwell hosted its third Roundtable in Psychology entitled Global Voices in Psychology.

Global Voices in Psychology provided a unique forum for the leaders of some of the world’s most influential psychological societies to share knowledge and experience about the challenges facing national and global psychology.

The Roundtable brought together representatives from the following psychological societies:

• Asean Regional Union of Psychological Societies
• Asian Association of Social Psychology
• Australian Psychological Society

Wiley-Blackwell will continue to facilitate the on-going, sustainable, and meaningful collaboration between these (and other) major societies, to ensure psychological associations and therefore psychology, is serving humanity in the  most productive way it can.
