Originally from the Netherlands, Davidwas an intern at Sonke Gender and Justice while doing research for his thesis. He was enrolled at Utrecht University where he plans to receive his BA in Cultural Anthropology this July. His research focused on the way in which indigenous people groups experience their citizenship and come in action for their rights.
Through his research and his internships he gained insight in the way that human rights are experienced and how NGOs like Sonke Gender Justice can contribute to access to equal rights for marginalized and disadvantaged groups.
In the future David wishes to continue his focus on human rights during his masters and gain insight in how he can contribute to equal rights.
