An International Secretariat, based at FHS/AUB, comprising a Research and Documentation Team (RDT) and an Administrative & IT team, runs the day-to-day work. ​

The Commission is supported by several centers at AUB and collaborates with global centers with expertise in specific issues of interest. The Commission engages a regional and global network of experts and convenes consultations with stakeholders to broaden its ​reach and collaboration and to inform and support its work. 

 A number of graduate students at the American University of Beirut ​and other institutions support the Commission's Secretariat as research volunteers and as members of the administrative team.
