The International Association for the Psychology of Religion on its journey into the twenty-first century1 BY J.A. V. BELZEN The Reconstitution of the Association From September 28-30, 2001, a conference was held in Soesterberg (The Neth- erlands) of importance to the International Association for the Psychology of Re- ligion, whose in-house periodical the reader is presently looking at. On the 29th September, in the framework of this fourteenth international conference, a gen- eral meeting took place at which the members took an entire series of steps to bring about the reorganization and revival of the Association. For a long time al- ready there had been criticism, in international, especially European, psychology- of-religion circles, of the way the Association functioned. Its style, self-under- standing and self-presentation were said to be outdated; it had no connection with present-day psychology; over the years its character had become increasingly con- fessional ; its understanding of the psychology of religion was not up-to-date. In each of these points the Association has now substantially transformed itself. In what follows we shall describe these changes in their own context. Criticisms like the ones mentioned were articulated, among other things, at a conference in Uppsala (Sweden)
