After a successful stint as a member of the LDE GMD Academic Executive Board (AEB), we, unfortunately, have to say goodbye to our esteemed AEB member prof. dr. Thea Hilhorst (ISS). She was a vital part of the center and contributed to our collaborative work in a plethora of ways; including working on the Reception in the Region report and co-pioneering the Hague South West (DHZW) initiative. Although no longer an AEB member, Thea will still remain an important and visible figure within the center.
In light of this, we are pleased to announce our newest AEB member dr. Nanneke Winters (ISS), who will take over from Thea as the ISS representative. Nanneke is Assistant Professor at the ISS and focuses on families’ cross-border labour and care work; migrant trajectories and illegalization; and the interplay between displacement and emplacement. Theoretically and methodologically, Nanneke builds on anthropology, feminist geography, and critical development studies. Nanneke teaches migration and methodology courses and will act as one of the LDE-GMD liaisons for the new Den Haag Zuid West scriptiewerkplaats/initiative.
Welcome Nanneke, we look forward to working together!
