The Society for Intercultural Education, Training and Research (SIETAR) was founded in 1974 as an interdisciplinary network for trainers and researchers in the area of intercultural and cross-cultural communication.[1]

As of 2004, SIETAR had a network of national and regional professional networks with more than 3,000 members worldwide.[1] It holds NGO status with the United Nations.[1] Kathryn Sorrells states that it "played a central role in facilitating collaboration among intercultural practitioners".[2] For a time, SIETAR was the publisher of the International Journal of Intercultural Relations before the publication was taken over by the International Academy of Intercultural Research.[3]

SIETAR has many different bodies, like Argentina, Austria, Brazil, British Columbia, Bulgaria, Europe, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, USA, and Young Sietar,
