Global Partners



Since 2015, World Rugby has undertaken wide-ranging reform of its governance structures, creating a dynamic, diverse environment with wider union and regional representation and independent skills-based voices on its decision-making bodies. World Rugby is constantly evolving its governance following best practices and launched an independent review in 2020 chaired by Sir Hugh Robertson.

In this section you can find links to all of World Rugby's decision-making bodies, including the Council, Executive Board and associated Committees, as well as the laws and regulations underpinning the Game, and World Rugby's global family of Regional Associations and Member Unions.
