HiiL is run by an Executive Board, Sam Muller and Maurits Barendrecht and with a Supervisory Board that provides general supervision and advice.

On substantive issues, the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board have the support and advice of a group of internationally prominent scholars assembled in the Programmatic Steering Board.

HiiL is proud to have the support and encouragement of the Committee of Honorary Patrons, in which pre-eminent scholars and practitioners work to support the Institute.
