In October 2009, justices from the Advisory Chamber of the Colombian Council of State visited the Councils of State of Spain and France. During that visit the idea arose of creating an International Yearbook on the Advisory function. This would become an instrument of communication and cooperation between the institutions entrusted with this important task around the world.

The three institutions agreed to invite other institutions to join to the initiative. Accordingly, Councils of State of Algeria, Belgium, Egypt, Greece, Netherlands, Italy, Lebanon, Luxembourg, Turkey, the Councils on Legislation of Sweden and Romania, the Constitutional Court of Guatemala, and the Spanish regional consultative councils were all invited to participate. All these institutions, which exercise their advisory role on an exclusive basis, or along with a judicial function, have considerable experience in the subject. Likewise, it has been considered important that international institutions that enjoy also an advisory function such as the International Court of Justice, the European Court of Human rights, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights and the Inter-American Juridical Committee be invited.    

With the purpose of advancing the initiative, and submitting for consideration by the assistants a first electronic version of the yearbook, the Colombian Council of State organized the First International Congress on the Advisory function, which took place in Cartagena, Colombia on September 5th, 6th and 7th, 2010. The event had the support of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID) and the Embassy of France in Colombia.
