The Centre is located at the Faculty of the Humanities of the University of Basel. Its Steering Committee directed by a speaker usually meets twice per semester. Its composition follows the interdisciplinary Research Axes of the Centre. The members drawn from various faculties are elected by the General Assembly, which meets every last Friday of the semester.
The executive office is the central port of call. It operates under the supervision of the Steering Committee and translates its decisions into practice.
For further information see the regulations (Geschäftsordnung) of the Centre.
