UP PhD student selected for Dutch Visitors Programme for young future leaders

Posted on August 24, 2016

The Centre for Human Rights in the Faculty of Law at the University of Pretoria is proud to announce that Mr Josua Loots has been selected to participate in the fifth official Dutch Visitors Programme (DVP).

Participants are nominated by Dutch embassies around the world and submitted for a selection process. The DVP is a special programme conducted by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs that brings together eight individuals from eight different countries for a study trip to the Netherlands.

The DVP was originally developed for young future leaders from emerging markets and powers like Brazil, India and China, but gradually expanded its scope to include other countries as well.

Participants in the DVP are hosted by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency for a ten-day visit that includes several individual and group meetings and events that focus on the professional and personal interests of each participant.

Mr Loots works as a Project Manager and Researcher at the Centre for Human Rights, concentrating on business and human rights, and on foreign policy. He is also busy with a PhD focussing on the implications of private investment in public infrastructure projects. The 2016 DVP will take place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from 9 to 19 October 2016.
