PRI is governed by a five-member Board comprising an Executive Chairperson and four members. The Board is appointed by the Council of Ministers from among national personalities with stellar track record in the field of scientific research, policy innovation, strategic leadership and social transformation. In constituting the Board, the principle of inclusion and diversity is complied with.

The Board works as a think tank and, in doing so, provides strategic leadership and guidance to PRI’s thematic and administrative functions, which include undertaking public policy research and generating recommendations for the government to implement, reviewing and approving PRI’s annual work plan and budget, and creating an enabling environment for PRI to effectively deliver on its plans and commitments.

The Executive Chairperson serves as an interface between the governance and day-to-day management of PRI.
