Dat begint met een goed begrip van hoe de wereld feitelijk in elkaar zit, wat de drijvende krachten zijn, hoe machtspolitiek van de grote mogendheden op andere landen inwerkt en aan welke eisen van volkenrecht en politieke ethiek goed beleid hoort te voldoen.

  • How to improve labour conditions in Indonesian palm oil plantations 2018

    Janneke Bosman started working for the Sen Foundation in 2009 and has supported us in several ways: as a researcher, general support and coordinator. Since 2009, she has been dedicated to work for and to support the Foundation.

    In 2016 she started working at CNV Internationaal, a foundation that supports trade unions in development countries. There, she is currently responsible for Indonesia. During one of their current programs, CNV Internationaal supports the trade unions in the palm oil sector. Earlier this year in January, Janneke together with CNV Internationaal travelled to Indonesia to produce a movie which shows how a process of continuous, constructive social dialogue between company and trade union is leading to improvements of labour conditions of workers at palm oil plantations and mills.
