Boardmember wanted!

Foundation Civic aims to provide evidence based suggestions for better integration strategies for newcomers in the Netherlands (and other EU Member States). The objectives of the foundation are:

a)    To collect social science and legal research on the outcomes of the current policy and

b)    To provide constructive suggestions for better integration policy, that is, policy that is measurably effective and fits within our constitutional state.

Stichting Civic wants to expand its board and is looking for general board members. Affinity with integration and integration issues is a must, but all expertise and profiles are welcome. They meet every two weeks; board membership requires a minimum of 4 hours per week.

They are looking for board members with the following competencies / background:

  • A boardmember who follows current events concerning integration, recognizes opportunities in this field and could write blogs (around 200 words).
  • A boardmember with knowledge of administrative law and / or integration policy, who can think along with and contribute to our legal sub. This includes the development of legal guidelines for professionals (in particular lawyers working in the field of integration) and the monitoring of the Civic Integration Abroad Act and the Civic Integration Act.
  • A boardmember with a critical eye and knowledge of fundamental debates about "(civic) integration" and someone who can contribute to the wider vision of the Civic Foundation on this theme.
