RISE is a collaborative enterprise with a global team of people drawn from many different organisations, sectors, and regions. The detailed research and data collection in the RISE focus countries is undertaken by our Country Research Teams (CRTs) in Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Tanzania, and Vietnam. The RISE Intellectual Leadership Team (ILT) provides expertise in various aspects of education systems, development, measurement, and analysis to deliver thought leadership, research advice, and scholarly assessment of RISE research activities and outputs. Augmenting the RISE research are the RISE Fellows, a group of invited, non-resident, academic researchers working on RISE themes with additional country focus or methods. The RISE Directorate, with team members from Oxford Policy Management and the Blavatnik School of Government at the University of Oxford, lead, manage, and synthesise the research.
