Academic Council

Academic Council

The Academic Council consists of all members and friends of the Association who organize a conference or other events. It also includes the editors of ATINER’s e-journals. In addition, the President may invite academics from all over the world to serve as members of the council. The position is an honorary position and our association cannot pay a salary or cover any other costs. As a non-profit, non-government and non-partisan association, we rely solely on members’ fees and members’ voluntary work to cover our expenses. According to ATINER’s constitution the academic council discusses the academic matters of the Association such as the conference academic subjects, the organization of other events, the publication of books and journals, etc. The academic council members can also assist as editors of ATINER’s Journals and serve as Directors-Heads of the Divisions and Units of ATINER. Currently, the academic council consists of the following members (in alphabetical order):
