Although she started in the field of tourism management with bachelor degrees from schools in Breda and Macao (SAR, China), Jacqueline soon switched to the international development sector. She obtained a Masters in International Development Studies, specializing in Disaster Studies, from Wageningen University. During her internship, she implemented and evaluated small enterprise groups in pastoralist communities in South Sudan and conducted her thesis research on the relations between returnees and ‘stayees’ in connection to their livelihoods. Jacqueline has also completed a traineeship at the West Africa Division of the European External Action Service, gained activist experience with PAX for Peace, worked at a commercial start-up, and supported the development of social businesses at a municipality in the Netherlands.
