Board of directors

Since 2013, PEP's international Board of Directors is in charge of determining broad strategic directions for the organization, defining the lines of action and institutional composition (approval/selection of partners and directors), providing oversight and monitoring the overall performance in achieving organizational goals.

The Board is composed of seven voting members – distinguished researchers and global experts in economic policy and policy analysis – and the Executive Director as an ex-officio member, and holds two official meetings annually, including one in person during the PEP Annual Conference. The current members are presented below.
