Re-Define Experts and Staff
Re-Define's Council of Experts and Panel of Experts program brings together prominent thinkers who have distinguished themselves in their field of work. This group represents the brain trust of Re-Define.
In addition to contributing to Re-Define's work and pool of ideas on a continuing basis, the experts are also responsible for guiding Re-Define's strategic direction. They provide crucial capacity and expertise on the policy issues that Re-Define works on and provide critical links for advocating Re-Define's perspectives to bring about policy change.
Many of the experts hold senior level public policy positions and hence also provide both an ideal resource and channel for targeted advocacy initiatives. Their expertise is central to Re-Define's capacity provision, policy making and advocacy role.
The Re-Define team consists of the core hub of researchers and policy analysts who are responsible for the day to day running of the Think Tank, the Advisory Board who give strategic and policy guidance and will also be active in Research work, the Council of Advisors which will work and co-operate with Re-Define on matters of Research and Policy and members of the Panel of Experts who will work with Re-Define on a more ad hoc basis on specific pieces of work.
We have assembled a wide range of international expertise specifically for European Institutions related work. For more details on this team Click Here
