Founded in 1990, IAP2 is an international organisation whose members who seek to promote and improve the practice of public participation in relation to individuals, governments, institutions, and other entities that affect the public interest in nations throughout the world.

IAP2 International is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organisation incorporated in the United States. At present there are established IAP2 affiliates in Australasia, Canada and the United States, emerging affiliates in Indonesia, Italy and Southern Africa, and an affiliate forming in Latin America.

IAP2 is undergoing a change journey where the organisational functions are changing significantly. We are moving away from the federation model to one of strong regional and strong international representation and an equal focus on professional development, advocacy and emerging practice. The functions of IAP2 International are currently being guided by the IAP2 Governance Framework, broadly, these include:

  • Establishing high level policies, criteria and standards for IAP2 globally.
  • Stewardship of the IAP2 brand.
  • Maintaining a global membership database.
  • Advancing the practice of public participation at a global level through advocacy and research.
  • Nurturing and formally approving the creation of new regional bodies of IAP2.
  • Maintaining a catalog of IAP2 products and services globally, including responsibility for a global learning pathway.

The 2020 IAP2 International Board consists of Directors elected by the members. It is a volunteer board responsible for the strategic leadership and governance of the International organisation. This new Board will drive the strategic initiatives and implementation of the change journey beginning January 1, 2020.
