Headline: Advisory Board

The Advisory Board supports the Board of Directors and the General Assembly in strategic, thematic and, if appropriate, structural developments and decisions by providing advice from a critical, knowledgeable external perspective. For example, the Advisory Board provides advice to the Board of Directors regarding the further development of the institute's thematic key areas, the strategic and medium-term research programme, central research projects, the institute's strategic cooperations as well as its involvement in key dialogue and policy processes.

The current chair of the Advisory Board is Dr Jorge Vasconselos.
