Annelies Waterlander

Workshop Facilitator

Journalist, DUB, Utrecht University


Annelies is a journalist working for the independent media outlet of the Utrecht University (DUB). She studied journalism at the Hogeschool Utrecht and Islam & Arabic at the UU. She satisfies her own curiosity by doing research as a journalist and as an ‘anthropologist’. Together with an associate professor she is working on a research about converts to Islam and the Dutch identity.

If you want to find a solution, you have to know what the problem is. That’s why during her workshop, Annelies will help you prepare the meeting with your client. You will learn which interview techniques and questions help you map the problem you will be working on during the Co-Challenge. Skills that are useful in other settings too.
