During recent years, there has been expanding interest and a growing body of multidisciplinary identity research in Finland and worldwide. At the same time, the International Society for Research on Identity (ISRI) has expanded its international profile and European presence in an effort to support research on identity processes across the lifespan. We feel that both national and international collaboration should be encouraged and facilitated.
