What is ISQOLS? Established, in 1995, the International Society for Quality-of-Life Studies (ISQOLS) is a global organization with a mission to promote and encourage research in the field of quality-of-life (QOL), happiness, and wellbeing studies.
Why a joint membership? ISQOLS and CIC have a long shared history. ISQOLS is the older organization, funded in 1995. A group of ISQOLS leaders organized two conferences that led to the recognition that community indicators practitioners needed their own space and CIC was funded in 2004, originally including several ISQOLS leaders. ISQOLS’ membership is more heavily weighted towards researchers and academia, while CIC’s membership consists of a mix of practitioners and researchers, but both overlap with a wide variety of fields: e.g., economists, planners and urbanists, evaluators, sociologists, statisticians. Broadly speaking: ISQOLS research is useful to CIC’s practitioners and CIC practitioners can inform ISQOLS researchers.
