The Advisory Board provides high-level governance and strategic direction, championing its work, and ensuring that the actions of the Global Initiative are consistent with its mandate.  The members of the Advisory Board provide oversight for the financial, legal, human resources and ethical integrity of the Global Initiative.

We have sought to appoint a small but engaged board who herald from a range of backgrounds, but that bring with them personal experience in fighting organized crime and leveraging political will to have an impact in complex problems.  We have sought to ensure that the Advisory Board is geographically representative, and will include a combination of Northern and Southern states, as well as being gender balanced.
