International Leadership Team
The International Leadership Team is responsible for managing the work of ATD Fourth World around the world.
Together with ATD Fourth World’s Executive Board, the International Leadership Team is responsible for coordinating ATD worldwide, both sparking creative initiatives, and helping to sustain the collective will of our members, particularly for those whose commitment is a life-long choice.
ATD Fourth World’s Volunteer Corps, in consultation with activists, allies, supporters and friends has the responsibility of chosing team members. ATD’s General Assembly then electes the team for five-year terms.
The current team consists of four persons. The Director General is Isabelle Pypaert Perrin (Belgium). The Deputy General Directors are Martine Le Corre (France), Bruno Dabout (France) and Álvaro Iniesta Pérez (Spain).
In particular, they are responsible for the evaluation planning process that leads to choosing our guidelines and priorities. See: Our 2019-2023 Common Ambitions.
To carry out its mission, the team is supported by:
- The regional delegations for Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Mideast, North America, and the Indian Ocean. Each supports ATD’s action and members and develops exchanges and common projects between regions and with the International Leadership Team.
- The International Center, which includes four main teams: Knowledge /Action/Engagement, Training, Public Communications, and Administration, Ethics, and Finance. There are also several teams working on specific tasks: the Secretariat of the International Leadership Team, International Advocacy, the Forum on Overcoming Extreme Poverty, the October 17th Committee, the Joseph Wresinski Centre, and Merging Knowledge.
