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). 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. The RISE Directorate, with team members from Oxford Policy Management, Blavatnik School of Government at the University of Oxford, and the Center for Global Development lead, manage, and synthesise the research.
