NWO Veni grant for research into international organizations

The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has awarded a Veni grant to ten young researchers at Radboud University. With this grant of up to 280.000 euro they can further elaborate their own ideas during a period of three years. One of these excellent researchers is dr. Reinout van der Veer, assistant professor of International Relations.

International organizations: responsible and responsive?

International organizations address important international challenges, such as climate change and economic inequality. Their political neutrality and expertise make them exceptional at delivering responsible policy. Yet we also increasingly expect these organizations to listen to us. This project investigates how the experts and elites working in these organizations think about and decide on bringing together their expertise and societal demands. In doing so, it provides a fundamentally new perspective on how international organizations balance responsibility with responsiveness.
