The primary means by which IAAC develops thought leadership is through its structured research programme enabled by workshops. Each workshop has a particular objective contributing to the current research theme. Its aim is to illuminate relevant issues through discussion and to develop innovative insights and ideas. Workshops normally take place during the afternoon in Central London.
The usual format is to start with a small number of presentations to lay out relevant ideas from different perspectives. This is followed by round table discussion under the 'Chatham House Rule' through which attendees contribute views, insights, ideas and questions, together working to generate the thought leadership that IAAC is known for.
The output from each workshop is captured in a report that presents a synthesis of the contributions made. These reports are freely available to all IAAC members through this web site.
Attendance at IAAC research workshops is open to all who would like to make a contribution to the discussion. To register your interest in contributing to IAAC's research and to receive notices and invitations for future workshops, please contact IAAC on . Whilst we would like to be able to invite all those who wish to contribute to each of the workshops, we occasionally need to limit the number of attendees at each to ensure the discussion remains directed and focused.
IAAC welcomes suggestions for how its research results and thought leadership could be put to greater use. Please contact IAAC on to discuss how you would like to make use of IAAC's research results.
From time to time, IAAC participates in events or initiatives organised by other bodies or undertakes joint work with other bodies. If you would like IAAC to participate in an event you are holding or would like to discuss having IAAC work on a joint initiative with your organisation, please contact IAAC on .
