FIDE’s most important activity consists in the organisation of biennial FIDE Congresses and the related publications. These congresses are by many considered to be among the most significant and reputable conferences on EU law, bringing together great minds in the area.
The unique FIDE Congresses typically attract approximately 500 participants from all over Europe and beyond. Here, prominent and internationally acknowledged representatives from the academic world meet with judges and advocates general from the Court of Justice of the EU, as well as leading personalities from the General Court of the EU, national (supreme) courts and other courts, officials from the Commission, the Council, Parliament, national ministries, as well as practicing lawyers. Over several days of intense legal discussions and debates, what could be called the elite of EU law exchange ideas and visions for the development of EU law.
The Court of Justice of the European Union supports the Congress by providing professional interpretation services including simultaneous interpretation allowing all presentations and speeches at the Congress to be followed in English, French and German.
