The ERI Advisory Committee is a working group of partners and allies who inform our Research Agenda.

Convening bi-annually, the Advisory Committee holds discussions on the current landscape; identifies new research avenues; provides feedback on current research projects; and assists in the alignment of ERI’s values and the research produced. We are grateful to have the following individuals and organizations on our 2023-2025 Advisory Committee:
