IBBY's policies and programmes are determined by its Executive Committee: ten people from different countries and a President, working on a voluntary basis and selected biennially by the National Sections at a General Assembly during the IBBY Congresses. The Executive Committee works within the framework of the IBBY Statutes. The daily management of IBBY's affairs is conducted from its Secretariat in Basel, Switzerland.

The National Sections are organized in many different ways and operate on national, regional and international levels. In countries that do not have a National Section, individual Membership in IBBY is possible.
