Organizer

Mercator European Research Centre on Multilingualism and Language Learning

The International Association of Language and Social Psychology (IALSP) aims to ensure the continuity and development of biennial international conferences (ICLASPs) that serve important functions of: exchange of ideas; establishing and extending contacts; facilitating collaborative research projects; and sharing experiences among colleagues from a variety of disciplines and professions from around the world. The diversity of perspectives focusing on the intersection of language and social behavior and experience has been one of the most exciting and rewarding features of the earlier conferences (in Australia, Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, USA, & UK).

The Mercator Research Centre gathers and mobilises expertise in the field of language learning at school, at home and through cultural participation in favour of linguistic diversity of Europe. The Mercator Research Centre brings Europe to Fryslân and Fryslân to Europe. The Mercator Research Centre is part of the Fryske Akademy.
