International Perspective is proud to welcome three new crew members as we continue to expand our Crew. Michail, Pauline and Luther will volunteer as the new H.R. Director, Career Assistant and Media Assistant respectively. Who are they and what will they be doing?
Michail Rombouts, Human Resources Director
Michail graduated from the University of Antwerp with a Master’s degree in History, for which he reviewed the Belgian press during the wars against communism and terrorism in Vietnam and Afghanistan respectively. Afterwards, he shifted his focus to contemporary geopolitics by researching the root causes for the support of the Assad family by the Russian Federation, and its predecessor the Soviet Union. For this he received a Master’s degree in International Relations and Diplomacy.
The goal of all these studies was to become a history teacher, but he eventually decided to work as a volunteer in various organizations to discover other opportunities. He eventually found a new passion in the humanitarian sector, more specifically by working with refugees. Aside from his current professional employment in the refugee sector, Michail continues to work as a volunteer for different organizations.
As IP’s Human Resources Director, Michail will be in charge of recruiting and managing IP crew members. He has already pledged to make our H.R. procedures more professional all the while continuing our personal approach.
