Governing Board


The Governing Board

Composition :

The Institute is administered by a Governing Board, consisting of twelve members chosen for their competence and sitting in their personal capacity:

  • eight members including economists, educators and other recognized specialists in fields relevant to IIEP’s mission, with at least one member each from Latin America, Asia, Africa and the Arab States, and
  • four members designated, respectively by the United Nations, the World Bank, a UN Agency and a UN Economic Commission.

Such a unique composition ensures that IIEP’s programmes correspond to the needs of UNESCO Member States by drawing from diversity of individual knowledge and experiences. Such a small but effective and representative board is also excellent way of ensuring a balance between autonomy and accountability to the Organization

Role :

The Board determines the general policy and the nature of the Institute’s activities within the framework of the general policy of UNESCO. It decides on the programme and the budget of the Institute and ensures the implementation of its activities.
