The main aim of the article is to present and describe the main foundational elements, as well as the iconic events and mission, of the Ibero-American Federation of Psychology Associations (FIAP). The contributions and tasks of this organization are described, as well as the difficulties of building an organized psychology, vulnerable to the fragilities and diversities of the socio-economic and socio-political realities of the region. The final purpose is to discuss the role of the FIAP within the organization and representation of the psychology profession, as well as its shortcomings, challenges, and tasks, in order to continue to promote the positioning and internationalization of the psychological science and profession in Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries.

Keywords : FIAP; Scientific organizations; Professional organizations; Globalization; Ibero-American psychology.
