The time has come to make this news public — I am starting a new exciting job as an Assistant Professor (tenure-track) at the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS), Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) in September 2018. ISS is located in The Hague although it is part of EUR. My responsibilities will include teaching in “Governance and Development Policy” Major, supervising Ph.D. students, conducting research and research funding acquisition and taking part in university administration.
ISS is an excellent institute where governance and development meet, and where the focus is placed at the developing world — both in research and education. No other university in The Netherlands can claim that the biggest majority of its students come from Africa, Latin America and Asia. This brings with it a great opportunity for exciting research from the perspective of Southern scholars/students, adding a much need diversity to the efforts to change the current unsustainable practices in the world. I am stepping down as a researcher at Utrecht University, but will maintain close links with the Environmental Governance group at Utrecht. I will remain Adjunct Senior Research Fellow at Institute of Water Policy, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore.
For communication — my Utrecht email will stop working from late August — thus it is best to write to my private email before I announce my new work email address.
