IEA Organization


IEA Organization

IEA is organized around the General Assembly (GA), hosted each year by a different member institution to conduct IEA business. Every three years, IEA elects a Chair to guide the association. A Standing Committee of six IEA delegates, elected by the GA, meets twice a year under the direction of the Chair to review IEA policy.

The permanent Secretariat of the IEA is located in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. It consists of an Executive Director and a small staff.

Every IEA study, once it has been approved by the General Assembly, is overseen by an International Coordinating Center responsible to the IEA Standing Committee (SC) and the General Assembly for carrying out all international aspects of the study. An International Steering Committee (ISC) of renowned experts, along with technical advisers, is appointed to advise each International Coordinating Center.

The National Research Center of each educational system participating in a study is attached to the International Coordinating Center.
