She is also involved in developing training programmes  in strategic leadership for regional leaders and a course in Blue Diplomacy for diplomats from Small Island Developing States.

Previously Annelieke worked at the Dutch Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations as a policy advisor regarding relations between the state, provincial and municipal levels, particularly in the field of social assistance. She also worked for some time at the municipality of Zaanstad on refugee reception and integration. Before that, Annelieke lived in Uganda for over six years, where she coordinated research and advocacy on transitional justice and national reconciliation. The main research project she coordinated resulted in the publication of a “Compendium of Conflicts in Uganda”, which mapped over 100 conflicts that Uganda experienced, as well as people’s perspectives on how justice should be achieved regarding those conflicts.
