Representatives of member countries and the European Commission provide strategic orientations for the OECD. Chaired by the Secretary-General, decisions are taken by consensus.
Committees, expert and working groups bring together countries and partners to share policy experiences, innovate and review policy implementation and impact.
OECD directorates collect data, provide analysis and formulate recommendations to inform committee discussions, based on the Council’s mandate.
Representatives from government, business, labour, civil society and academia participate in our work and provide their views through consultations and regular exchanges with the Secretariat.
