As Psychology’s Global Voice, the 132-year old International Union of Psychological Science (IUPsyS), is a Non-Governmental, Not for Profit organisation that comprises over 90 National Country Member organisations and 24 international and regional affiliates, representing over two million psychologists around the world.
