Blogs of a researcher: reading, reading and more reading

Blog

In my first blog I described how I am researching the problem of the neighbourhood sports coach. I wanted to know more about the evaluation and accountability of the social impact of interventions. I worked on this in recent weeks mostly by reading a lot. In this second blog I want to tell you about my experiences in recent weeks and share with you what I have been reading, why I have been reading so much and how I found the articles.

Programmes

One of the privileges of studying in The Hague is being in the city of peace and justice filled with international organizations and opportunities. My name is Nadia Isaac and I’m a 4th year student who did my internship at Cordaid in The Hague specifically. This was an opportunity for which I was predestined. Finding an internship is always difficult and after months of searching for an internship with no luck I was contacted by a previous IPM student who notified me of an opening at Cordaid. Naturally I jumped at this opportunity – this was the beginning of something great; it has opened a new door for me.

International Sport Management and corona, a lecturer’s ...

Programmes

Corona. Up until three months ago, the main association I had with this word was a nice refreshing Mexican beer on Coronado Beach, California. It now stands for social distancing, self-isolation and teaching from home. That latter is quite a challenge but also a chance to start using the digital teaching materials that have been around for a while.

More free time: just a few of weeks ago it was every student’s dream. Now the highlight of my day is making my way to the grocery store, with the rest of it dictated by self-isolation and social distancing. Enjoy the weather? Meet up with friends? Not while everyone is stuck in their rooms and everything revolves around soap, toiler paper and #StayHome.

Student Blog: Rachel Aimakhu on her Internship in Niger...

Programmes

My name is Rachel Aimakhu and I am a 4th year IPM student. For my internship, I opted for the field of PR (Public Relations) which comprises around 5% of the IPM program (something we learnt as part of the Professional English subject). As an individual who loves to explore and learn new things, going for that tiny percent of an interestingly vast and in-depth field such as PR, is by far one of the smartest decisions I’ve made. Most intriguing for me was that for my internship I had the opportunity to travel back to Nigeria, West Africa, where the first (almost) two decades of my life were spent living and learning the tradition and culture of this beautiful nation. I left Nigeria permanently for the Netherlands nearly a decade ago and it is surprisingly refreshing to be back here.
