The International Association for Research in Economic Psychology

Founded in 1982, the International Association for Research in Economic Psychology (IAREP) is the natural meeting point for all those interested in the areas where psychology and economics intersect. It has a wide international membership, drawn from psychologists and economics, but also from specialists in business administration, marketing and consumer behaviour. The Association's members include both academics and practitioners, and students are always encouraged to take part in our activities.

The Interests of the Association are broad. A few of our members would describe themselves as "economic psychologists", and work in departments or institutes of economic psychology. The majority, however, are simply experts in one discipline who recognize that neighbouring disciplines have something important to contribute to the areas they are interested in. We welcome anyone who takes this kind of open-minded approach to research. Economic psychology is concerned with both with the psychological mechanisms through which economic behaviour comes about, and with the psychological effects of economic events. While IAREP stresses the importance of empirical work, we also recognize the contribution both economic and psychological theory can make to interdisciplinary investigations.

The Activities of the Association include:
