Farewell ceremony for lector UN Studies Alanna O’Malley

On December 13 there was a small farewell ceremony for lector UN Studies Alanna O’Malley, with guests from THUAS, Leiden University and the City of The Hague. Alanna is leaving THUAS on 31 December to focus on her European Research Council grant which is hosted by the institute of History of Leiden University.

We are sorry to see Alanna go, but grateful for what she has achieved over the past three years, even during Covid, and happy she has agreed to remain involved with the colleagues she has supervised in this time. THUAS and Leiden university earlier agreed to extend this position for three years and preparations for recruitment for a new lector / special chair UN studies are ongoing, in which both of us are closely involved from the THUAS side.
