Welcome to IAP2 Australasia

IAP2 is an international member association which seeks to promote and improve the practice of public participation or community engagement, incorporating individuals, governments, institutions and other entities that affect the public interest throughout the world. IAP2 is the leading public participation Association in Australasia and IAP2 Australasia is the largest IAP2 affiliate in the world.

As an international leader in public participation, IAP2 has developed the Core Values for Public Participation for use in the development and implementation of public participation processes. These core values were developed over a two-year period with broad international input to identify those aspects of public participation which cross national, cultural, and religious boundaries. The purpose of these core values is to help make better decisions which reflect the interests and concerns of potentially affected people and entities.

We offer professional development, training, networking events, a world-class conference and leadership forum and the annual Core Values Awards which acknowledge the leading engagement projects around the world.
