New Governance Structure & Thematic Focus

After 15 years since our inception, the THP Board saw the need to usher in a new phase for the organisation. This included changes to the THP governance structure and membership. HRH Prince Constantijn of The Netherlands has now taken the new role of Honorary Chairman and a new Executive Board has been formed consisting of the following five members:

Ms. Nebahat Albayrak (Chairperson)
Shell, Vice President External Relations for Upstream International

Mr. Behdad Shahsavari (Treasurer)
Partner at Strategy&

HRH Princess Carolina de Bourbon Parma
UNRWA, Head & Representative for Partnerships in Switzerland

Professor Melissa Siegel
Associate Professor Maastricht University

Ms. Nava Hinrichs
Managing Director THP

The appointment of a new Advisory Council also forms part of the upcoming changes to THP.

In terms of changes to our areas of activity, we have streamlined our focus on three main pillars:  first, shaping policies on migration at the local, national, regional and international levels;  second, creating formal Business-City Partnerships to address migration related challenges;  and third, conducting and coordinating research to fill knowledge gaps in the migration field.
