The Governance of the Rights and Resources Initiative is conducted by the Board of Directors of the Rights and Resources Group (RRG), the coordinating mechanism of RRI.

The Board also receives input on governance from regular meetings of the RRI partners, which often take place simultaneously with meetings of the Board.
