dr. L. (Liesbet) Heyse

Assistant Professor & Secretary to the SCOOP Board



I am interested in how public, nonprofit and private organizations attempt to address societal challenges through their operations. I study the societal effects and performance of these organizations in relation to their governance structures and organizational practices . I apply these questions - in close collaboration with organizations involved - to specific settings, such as Dutch municipalities and NGOs working on the labor market integration of refugees and in the youth care sector, using both quantitative and qualitative methods.

I work in the Sociology Department SCIO research cluster 'Sustainable Cooperation, Institutions and Organizations'. I am the Secretary to the SCOOP board as well as a board member of the Dutch Sociological Association, and a member of the ICS.

Specific research themes:
- Labormarket integration of refugees
- Professionalization and performance of international (humanitarian) nonprofit organizations
- Public sector organizations and public sector reform
- Humanitarian crisis and aid provision
