About IAHAIO

IAHAIO, the International Association of Human-Animal Interaction Organizations, was founded in 1990 to gather together national associations and related organizations interested in advancing the understanding and appreciation of human-animal interaction (HAI). We meet a vital need for those doing HAI work to have a forum for networking, collaboration, and dissemination of the latest developments in the field. IAHAIO is incorporated as a not-for-profit entity in the state of Washington, USA. Our multi-national Board is comprised of representatives from five areas: membership, conferences, development, projects, policy and finance.

IAHAIO's main role is to provide a helpful coordinating structure between all member organizations. As the worldwide interest and support for Human-Animal Interaction science increases, IAHAIO's role as a communication link is essential to convey latest research findings and encourage further program development. In addition, IAHAIO has established a series of international awards to acknowledge contributions made by individuals or institutions in the study of HAI.

Publications

For years, IAHAIO has supported the scholarly journal Anthrozoos, the official journal of the International Society for Anthrozoology, ISAZ. Whereas IAHAIO is an umbrella association of organizations doing exciting work in the human-animal interaction field, ISAZ is an association of individuals studying human-animal interactions.
