FERAM -- Forum d'Etudes et de Rencontres Administratifs Mondiaux -- is a French association created in 1965, 50 years ago, to assist foreign ENA / IIAP (Institut International d'Administration Publique) trainees during their training sessions in France. First called "Foyer d'entraide et de rencontres pour les étudiants africains et malgaches" in the 60s, it has become a "Forum d'Echanges et de Rencontres Administratifs Mondiaux" (Worldwide Administrative Exchange and Meeting Forum). It invites keynote speakers to deliver short presentations and animate debates (usually during a breakfast, dinner or cocktail) on Public Administration related themes to the participants of ENA CISAP training sessions (CISAP = Cycle International d'Administration Publique Spécialisée, Specialised Public Administration International Cycles). The 50 Year Anniversary FERAM Conference took place at ENA in Paris on Monday October 5th 2015. The website (in construction) presents the history of the association, its activities, the international network of former IIAP and ENA alumni all over the world. The language used is usually French but can be English, Spanish, German or any other language if needed in the future. FERAM correspondants are invited to strengthen the network in their own respective countries. A Newletter will inform FERAM members and friends all over the world. A high-level steering committee is working on the next steps. Anne has been elected Vice-President in June 2015.
