Tibbe van den Nieuwenhuijzen specialised in international public policy with a focus on sustainability, security and participatory processes. For his master’s thesis, he investigated how domestic civil society involvement increases governmental responsiveness when acting within international organisations. He was selected to be part of the Sustainable Development Goals Global Public Policy Network team, which aimed at facilitating a just transition for Germany's coal phase-out and he was awarded the 2019 DAAD Prize for his active involvement. Prior to joining the Hertie School, Tibbe was elected as the Dutch Youth Representative to the EU, bridging the gap between policymakers and young people. He has professional experience as a public speaker, trainer and moderator and holds a Bachelor of Science in Political Science from the Radboud University.
