The General Assembly is the highest decision-making organ of CODESRIA and consists of the members of CODESRIA’s community. The Assembly meets once every three years around a scientific theme.
Discussions held during the Assembly form the nucleus around which the intellectual agenda of the Council is developed. The President, the Vice-President and Members of the Executive Committee are elected during the General Assembly.
While participation in the General Assembly is open to all CODESRIA members, only institutional and individual members who have paid their membership dues and are in good standing are entitled to vote.
