The foundation Africa in Motion (AIM, www.africainmotion.nl) is an organisation, which unites Africans in the Netherlands, with the aim of enhancing the socio-economic emancipation of Africa. AIM approached the Science Shop (Wetenschapswinkel) of Wageningen UR to conduct research on how AIM and African Diaspora in general can effectively participate in Dutch and European policy making concerning Africa. The main aim of the research project is to get information on:
Which formal and informal pathways do African Diaspora in The Netherlands have to influence Dutch and European policy concerning Africa?
The research will be guided by Rico Lie (Chair group Knowledge Technology and Innovation) and Pat van Jagt (Alterra) will be involved in the research on the Dutch context.
