The Children's Institute is headed by a director, who is supported by an executive committee, and a governing board made up of representatives from a range of policy-related disciplines across the University.
The Institute's work is organised in self-generated, donor-funded research and advocacy projects. It is also increasingly accepting commissions and tenders on request.
The multi-faceted nature of priorities for children and the multi-disciplinary approaches needed to address them require continuous collaboration between the researchers. Major projects often involve teams of staff from different research areas.
Cross-cutting support areas are general, financial and human resources administration, communication and knowledge management.
