Organising Committee

Marie Brasseur Grégoire Ryelandt

Dear friends of AIJA,

Now for the third time in our association’s history (following 1964 and 1999), Brussels again has the pleasure and honour of welcoming you to AIJA’s Annual Congress.

With this invitation, we would like to repay a little of what AIJA has given to us over the years through the association’s various seminars and conferences, and, in particular, with the Congresses that we have attended. This annual meeting remains a unique occasion in which the organising committee has been making every effort to reveal the treasures of our city and its inhabitants, whilst giving participants the opportunity to take part in a quality seminar programme and enhance professional networks within the particularly warm atmosphere that characterises AIJA.

During this week in Brussels, you will discover the different facets of our city and the legal community that works here. Brussels is in fact a city with multiple faces and great cultural wealth: it is situated on the border between Europe’s Latin and Germanic speaking regions, in the heart of the European Union, and benefits from the influences of the various communities, coming from each continent, that have established themselves here. Brussels is one of the most cosmopolitan world cities.

With energy and enthusiasm, the organising committee has been working to put together a unique programme of content that highlights the richness of the discussions between our various AIJA members. It will also enable participants to meet with AIJA colleagues and attend the numerous social events that will be interspersed throughout the week in our beautiful capital.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Brussels in August 2018!
