Confidential advisors

The N.W. Posthumus Institute has appointed two confidential advisors (vertrouwenspersonen). They may be contacted by any Posthumus PhD candidate or (R)MA student who might have concerns or complaints about inappropriate behavior within the context of Posthumus teaching activities.

The confidential advisors will explore possible solutions together with you, and will point out appropriate institutional support if necessary. The advisors will also register complaints and report to the Executive Committee and the Scientific Director, so appropriate action can be taken. It goes without saying that every step in this process will occur in consultation with you and is based on anonymity.

Current advisors:

  • Elise van Nederveen Meerkerk (Utrecht University), e-mail
  • Heidi Deneweth (Vrije Universiteit Brussel), e-mail
