“From its very beginning, the FIDE congress has had the active support of the European Court of Justice. It has become a honourable tradition that members of the Court and its staff participate and enjoy the opportunities to reflect on developments in EU law with academia and practice.”

Berend Jan Drijber

Advocate-General at the Supreme Court of the Netherlands

“At FIDE the world of European law unites to discuss the state of EU law on European and national level. The formula in which high-level debate is combined with the convenience to meet with colleagues in a more informal setting have proven a lasting success.”

Thijs van der Plas

Director-General European Co-operation at the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs

“In my present capacity, but also as a former principal legal advisor to the Permanent Representation of the Netherlands, it is with great affection that I think of FIDE. Their congresses greatly contribute to deepening insights into the development of EU law. Excellent that FIDE hosts its conference in the Netherlands for the third time.”

Stefaan Van den Bogaert

Professor of EU law, Leiden Law School

“The FIDE congress is a recurring highlight on the academic calendar. There is tremendous value in bringing together different perspectives on EU law and to discuss current issues with academics and EU law practitioners.”
