Blog and Op-Eds

I have produced a number of op-eds, for Trouw, Volkskrant, AD and others and regularly write blogs, for example for IRIN-news, the Oxfam blog and the blog of ALNAP. Since 2018, I am a regular blogger for BLISS, the blog of ISS for global development and social justice. I aim to present an honest and realistic image of the wicked problems of fragility, the everyday practices of aid, and the messy realities of international relations.
