The Bureau of the Executive Body
The Bureau consists of the Chair of the Executive Body and seven Vice-Chairs, who include the Chairs of the four main subsidiary bodies of the Executive Body. The Bureau is elected annually by the Executive Body and acts as an inter-sessional forum for strategic action and operational coordination. The Bureau prepares policy-oriented proposals for submission to the Executive Body and promotes interdisciplinary cooperation and integration. It may decide upon urgent matters based on input from the Bureaux of the subsidiary bodies but such decisions should be considered and confirmed, as appropriate, by the Executive Body itself.
Since November 2000 the Bureau has made the notes of its meetings available on this web site.
