Christine Dijkstra

Project Manager - Business Unit Europe, Middle East and North Africa

Bachelor’s degree in International Studies and master’s degree in Middle-Eastern Studies with a specialisation in contemporary Middle-Eastern history, both from Leiden University. Implementing projects focused on strengthening local governance and improving service delivery in Lebanon and Libya.

I think strengthening local governance is essential in order to initiate and maintain sustainable improvements in living conditions on all levels, especially because it is smaller in scale and more easily accessible.
