International Academic Council

Strategically important cross-border analysis

About the IAC

Fide’s International Academic Council has been constituted with the overall aim to continue strengthening Fide’s presence internationally and contribute to cross-border analyses of current topics. The high standard body of professionals from countries in three continents, will collaborate strategically to identify and consider subjects which are topical and strategically important in a cross-border context.

The members of Fide’s International Academic Council meet regularly to discuss relevant topics, proposals, and exchange opportunities to collaborate and develop a calendar of activities which allows for activities aligned with the aim and vision of the Fide’s International Academic Council.

Main work areas

Artificial Intelligence

Digital Economy

Digital Revolution

Nationalism and Populism

Given Fide’s aim of growing its international activities, creating an International Academic Council is a logical next step, and will provide a wide spectrum of perspectives from professional based in different countries and different parts of the world. I think Fide has an exciting agenda for future International Congresses and workshops, and my goal is to contribute to it with advice and practical input, including news blogs on key legal issues for Fide’s website.
