International Advisory Council

Brookings established the International Advisory Council, a group of distinguished international business and community leaders, to extend its outreach and relevance to other countries and increase its ability to inform the American public and policymakers about global developments. Members—who represent 25 countries on five continents—provide invaluable advice and diverse perspectives on developments in their own regions, along with candid insights into how America and its policies are received abroad. Membership on the International Advisory Council is by invitation only.
