Dr. Ronald Holzhacker

Senior Lecturer

International Relations and International Organization


With this program, we wish to underscore the long standing relationship between the University of Groningen and the people of Indonesia.

  • We aim to further enrich the dialogue between scholars of our two countries, especially to further the research conducted by emerging scholars, future leaders of Indonesia, committed to the universal ideals of democracy and good governance.

Effective and efficient, transparent and accountable, good governance will continue to serve Indonesia well on its path of growth, social justice, and peace.

  • We have developed an inter-disciplinary program on good governance here at the University of Groningen, bridging theoretical and methodological approaches from international relations, economics, sociology, law, and geography. We want you to be part of our team.
