I’m happy to share that I moved back to the Netherlands to work for the CPB Netherlands Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis! The CPB is an independent research institute that provides economic analyses and projections.
I have taken up the position as Programme Lead Wellbeing (“Brede Welvaart”). This ambitious programme aims to help the Dutch government to create policies that enhance wellbeing of all.
I will lead the work at the CPB to construct tools that better capture whether policies improve wellbeing:
1. … in all dimensions – not just financial, but also with regard to the environment, health, education and social cohesion;
2. … among all citizens;
3. … in a sustainable fashion so that future generations can enjoy similar levels of wellbeing.
Please send me a message if you like to talk about this at S.H.Thewissen@cpb.nl.
The last four years at the OECD in Paris have been wonderful for my own level of wellbeing. Merci beaucoup my dear colleagues and we will stay in touch!
