Who we are


The International Association for the Study of Sexuality, Culture and Society (IASSCS) is a non-profit civil association concerned with the social and cultural study of sexuality.

IASSCS was founded in 1997 in Amsterdam, with the commitment to build equity in research capacity worldwide and to develop a broad range of multidisciplinary research activities in the social and cultural study of sexuality.

Legally incorporated in 2008 as an independent organization in Peru, the organization is administered by an elected Board of Directors and a Secretariat - based at the Institute for Studies in Health, Sexuality and Human Development in Lima- overseeing the implementation and coordination of IASSCS program activities.
