Governance

JCI is committed to the highest standards of integrity and accountability. It is governed by an Executive Council, which is responsible for the Institute’s overall direction and organisation.

The International Academic Advisory Council, which includes some of the world’s leading scholars on the Asian region, provides advice on research priorities and academic initiatives, and is designed to strengthen research and teaching ties with universities and think-tanks, including Sunway University and Harvard University.
