CHRI's governance structure has grown around three executive committees or boards in each of the three countries where it has offices-- India, Ghana and the UK. An International Board (formerly the International Advisory Commission) has an overall supervisory and advisory role. CHRI International chairpersons have included distinguished figures such as Prof Yashpal GhaI and Prof Margaret Reynolds, a legal scholar and former Australian minister. The international board is headed by Professor Alison Duxbury, a human rights law specialist at the University of Melbourne, Australia. Other members include the chairpersons of the three executive committees. The International director is secretary to the international board.
