The IAMCR is the preeminent worldwide professional organization in the field of media and communication research. The association is a Non-Governmental Organization and maintains official relations with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, having established a consultative relationship in 1957. The IAMCR is truly international and includes members from all over the world. Its members promote global inclusiveness and excellence within the best traditions of critical research in the field. The association represents a community of scholars who utilize online and offline opportunities for building strong, collegial and supportive networks. The organization disseminates information about research and research needs through various platforms, as well as maintaining professional relationships with a wide range of media and communication organizations, including regional associations such as the Asociación Latinoamericana de Investigadores de la Comunicación, the Asian Media Information and Communication Centre, the International Communication Association, and the European Communication Research and Education Association, as well as national organizations. Overall, the IAMCR attempts to stimulate interest in media and communication research and seeks to improve media and communication policy and practice, especially from international and interdisciplinary perspectives. The organization seeks to strengthen and encourage communication research worldwide and promotes the full participation of new scholars, women and those from economically disadvantaged regions.
