University Partners & Organisations

IAFOR is affiliated with and supported by some of the world’s leading universities, non-profit organisations and academic institutions through the IAFOR Global Partnership Programme, an alliance for positive change.

IAFOR’s work with senior administrators and professors at these organisational partners helps to develop conference programmes that are exciting, thought-provoking and academically rigorous, and contributes to making the concept of an international academic forum a reality.

We would like to thank the following institutions for their support:
