‘I haven't felt at home in the new group,'
Thea Hilhorst, professor of Humanitarian Aid and Reconstruction, has left the university's Sociology and Anthropology of Development section. She and her PhD students will be working in another science group for the next four years, after which she will leave Wageningen. Hilhorst announced this last week. 'Last year, my beloved Disaster Studies was merged with Rural Development Studies. I haven't felt at home in the new group,' says Hilhorst, explaining her decision to leave Leeuwenborch. She moved to Radix this week with her project staff and PhD students. She will spend the next few years there completing her research programme
