People

INCLUDE is a platform of African and Dutch professionals comprising platform members, a steering group, and a secretariat.

Our platform members bring with them their personal expertise from the field of sustainable and inclusive international development. The Steering Group governs the activities of the platform and decides on its research agenda based on contributions by the platform members. The Secretariat drives and coordinates the platform and is run as a virtual consortium of the African Studies Centre Leiden (ASCL) in Leiden, The Broker in The Hague, and African Economic Research Consortium (AERC) in Nairobi. Our knowledge managers make evidence accessible and available for use to policymakers and practitioners for policymaking and implementation.
