Robbert van de Waerdt

Policy Advisor Youth


Office Location: The Hague, the Netherlands

As a policy advisor on youth, Robbert is very conscious that the opportunities he enjoyed as a young person have made him the dynamic and efficient professional he is today. He holds a Master's Degree in economics and in international development studies. Prior to joining Oxfam, Robbert worked as a volunteer in rural Uganda, as a researcher in Yemen, as an education specialist in Paris and program officer in Tunisia, and as a finance manager in Amsterdam. It is his dream that all young people - particularly the most marginalized - have the same possibilities he has had. Having been at the heart of its inception, Robbert is a proud member of Oxfam's inspiring Community of Practice on Youth Active Citizenship. He coordinates the YAC Working Group on Programme Development and Resource Mobilization.
