Expanding the networking opportunities within
FIABCI is vital to member success and satisfaction.
When FIABCI was founded in 1948, today’s global
real estate networks did not exist. As international
real estate franchises have expanded, FIABCI’s role
in the industry has shifted along with member
needs. The FIABCI advantage rests in the fact
that FIABCI embraces all categories and sectors
in the property industry. This diversity continues
to be the FIABCI Advantage. FIABCI provides a
forum for uniting the public, private, academic
and governmental interests in hopes of providing
society with optimal solutions to real estate related
problems. Historically, FIABCI has been the global
leader in promoting property rights and human
settlement shelter issues. Recently, these concerns
have emerged as sustainable development. FIABCI
continues to utilize its broad-based membership
profile for mankind’s betterment. Consistent work
with the United Nations since 1954 reveals a firm
and lasting commitment to real property issues.                              FIABCI Regional Secretariat Located in Kuala Lumpur

                               FIABCI scholarship Foundation

The Foundation provides aid and travel assistance to

students who demonstrate an interest in the field of

international real estate. FIABCI has assisted students

from dozens of countries, and has helped to strengthen

the networks in the real estate industry worldwide.

The Foundation is empowered and authorized to

solicit and administer gifts, grants, bequests and

other funds available from appropriate sources for

the support of the scholarship program. Contributors

share the belief that this program, designed for the

future leaders in our industry, is an outstanding way

to return some of the blessings received from their

individual property endeavors. Entrepreneurs are risk takers. FIABCI helps manage the risk.

                                         Ms. Gosselin, pursuing her Master’s at Johns Hopkins University,

                                         had this to say in regard to her goals, “My foremost academic

                                         interest has been focused on the intersection between real estate and

                                         international affairs in emerging markets and transition economies.

                                         My educational goal is to merge the two seemingly disparate

                                         disciplines of international studies and real estate in an academic

                                         environment where little scholarship on the subject currently exists.”

social issues, and for formulating policy
recommendations. FIABCI participates with the

issues that transcend borders and touch every

FIABCI is the global advocate for advancing human settlements and the driving force for environmentally
sound, sustainable development. Neither of these goals can be reached without a sharp focus on the
importance of Property Rights. Working with the initiatives established by the High Level Commission

                                      of the Foundation to seek environmental friendly initiatives
                                      from each specific geographic region of the world: Asia-Pacific;
                                      Americas; Europe, Africa, and the Near East, and present an annual
                                      ENVIRONMENTAL AWARD from each region. Furthermore, it is the
                                      intent of the Foundation to recognize environmental friendly efforts
as appropriate within individual countries with the issuance of a FIABCI Environmental Foundation
Certificate of Merit. It is the intent of the Foundation to foster a broadened awareness of our fragile
global environment within all sectors of the real estate industry, and promote the wise stewardship of real
property as a natural resource.
