Governance

The NHC is a foundation with a two-tier governance structure: a Board which is in charge over governing the foundation and has ultimate responsibility for directing and implementing its programs, and a Committee which oversees the policies of the Board.

 

The day to day work of the Netherlands Helsinki Committee is led by Executive Director Harry Hummel and Deputy Director Jan de Vries, within the framework set by the Board.

 

Board

 

The Board consists of the following members:

 

Ian de Jong, Chairman

 

Anna Meijknecht, General Secretary

 

Gido Visser, Treasurer

 

Angela Kaptein

   

Committee

 

The Committee has an oversight (Raad van Toezicht) role. The Committee includes former diplomats, civil servants and political representatives who have worked in fields relevant to human rights and rule of law, and (former) members of the judiciary, academics and from other civil society organizations and the media world.
