Tim Masselink was Training and Research fellow at the Clingendael Academy until May 2018 and certified intercultural communications trainer. He worked in the Clingendael International Skills Programme, focusing on international negotiations, negotiation behaviour and intercultural communication. He also specialised in the processes and institutions of the European Union.
As a Clingendael trainer, he provided training sessions for – among others - the Dutch Higher Defense College, the Flemish Government and the College of Europe. He also provided the intercultural training sessions for the numerous groups of (foreign) diplomats that visit the Clingendael Institute. Furthermore, he worked in the Processes of International Negotiation (PIN) programme, that Clingendael coordinated until January 2018.
Before joining Clingendael, Tim worked within the Directorate for European Affairs at the Dutch Ministry of Economic affairs. Tim graduated in 2007 with a Master’s degree in Organizational Psychology and in 2009 with a Master’s degree in International Relations. The Clingendael Institute offers him the perfect environment to combine these two disciplines - training professionals to manage their interests more effectively.
