Opening Academic Year

Among great interest, the opening of the academic year of the Research School Political History took place at the Allard Pierson Museum in Amsterdam. Newly appointed professor Susie Protschky (VU Amsterdam) and dr. René Koekkoek (Utrecht University) presented lectures on global politics and political history. 

Furthermore, several PhD candidates who recently fulfilled their basic training program received their basic certificate and new PhD candidates met for the first time. Last but not least, the networking opportunities and drinks afterwards were so enjoyable that participants had difficulty leaving the meeting. 

PhD candidates who were not able to attend the ceremony, can obtain their certificate via the mail. Please contact
