Established in 1990 by the Governing Council, the International Affairs Committee mission is to advocate for an international perspective on child development research and theory within the Society and its work. A central goal of the Committee is to broaden international representation in the membership and publications of the Society. The committee accomplishes its mission by facilitating international collaborations in research, education, and application by holding formal workshops and conferences, as well as informal international exchanges of knowledge about child development.

Human Development Intervention Network
The International Affairs committee launched a new global network for human development intervention research, particularly in low- and middle-income countries. Using the new global network, a researcher or interventionist is able to create a member profile on the network and then use searchable databases to connect with other individuals conducting similar work and to access resources to use in designing human development interventions and evaluations. We developed and launched an on-line platform (www.hdin.org) that:
- Connects individuals conducting research and human development interventions in different countries to researchers with related interests;
- Indexes measures that can be used in evaluations of interventions and methods that can promote rigorous evaluations; and
- Facilitates exchanges of ideas among a network of scholars and action partners who implement interventions to promote human development around the world.
