Stimulate and support achievement of the most advanced standards in democratic and decentralised governance


Internal organisation

Flag’s highest decision-making body is the board of directors. The Foundation employs eight full-time staff, including the executive director. Flag's strength lies in its large pool of experts developed over the past 20 years.

Network of experts

Flag’s organisational and technical expertise is supported and complemented by short-term inputs from top local and international experts in specialised disciplines. A group of 44 experts comprised the core of the Compass programme’s local network, people with hands on experience capable of disseminating knowledge, managing processes and encouraging sustainable change.

The core group is complemented by a broader structure that now includes more than 100 professionals, in various policy areas.
