Participation in the Congress

The German national group is a permanent fixture within the AIPPI. It is always represented at the annual World Congress, the highlight of the AIPPI year, with a large number of participants and delegates. Many of our members take the opportunity of the congress to meet colleagues from all over the world in one place. Many of our members have been cultivating their networks in this way for many years.

At the World Congress, resolutions are drawn up from the reports of the various national groups in an elaborate process involving numerous votes and ultimately adopted. The resolutions are the primary product of AIPPI’s work. They are taken into account by legislators and courts all over the world. The database of past resolutions is a very rich source of information on the work of AIPPI and the majority opinion of its members (link to the AIPPI Library).

Members who have recommended themselves through longstanding or particularly committed work attend the World Congress as delegates of the German national group. These delegates are entitled to vote in the Executive Committee and can therefore directly influence the wording of the resolutions. The voting process is one of the most exciting moments of the congress and is always characterised by very lively yet objective discussions.

In addition to the work in the committees and a wide range of events for discussion and training, the World Congress offers a rich programme of cultural highlights.
