The International Association of Schools and Institutes of Administration (IASIA) is the specialized entity of the International Institute of Administrative Sciences (IIAS) established in 1961 and is located in Brussels. IASIA is an international/global association, whose mission is to strengthen administrative capacity building around the world, to advance excellence in public administration education and training, and to conduct, discuss, and disseminate cutting-edge scholarly research and "smart practices" on governance and administration.

IASIA provides organizations and individual members from various part of the world, having the same concerns, with the opportunity to consider and advance their interests from a global perspective while taking into account local, regional and national specificities. As a platform for the exchange of knowledge, IASIA makes at once mutual support and assistance more possible and helps serve the needs arising from the increasingly complex environment in which governments and their public services are called on to operate.
