The 30 persons who make up the Board include current and former foreign ministers, high-level foreign ministry officials, permanent representatives to the United Nations and senior academic personalities. Mr. Agha Shahi, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Pakistan, has served as the Chairman of the Board from the beginning of its activities and, since its fourth session, Mr. Eugeniusz Wyzner of Poland has been its Vice-Chairman.
