Very commonly, conflict induces waves of migration. Jolanda is particularly interested in the changes and experiences that people go through personally, as well as the effect that migration has on society. This is why she chose the master’s programme Migration and Global Interdependence at the History department of the University of Leiden as a follow-up in 2013.
Jolanda started as a research intern in KITLV’s project ‘Dutch military operations in Indonesia 1945-1950’ in September 2014. During her internship she will be mainly analyzing ego-documents of veterans from the Koninklijke Landmacht who were stationed in Indonesia during this period. In addition, she will also be looking through veteran’s websites and analyzing interviews.
