Alexander Otgaar has been working at IOB since 2017 on the themes of international responsible business conduct (IRBC) and sustainable development.
He read business economics at Erasmus University (MSc, 1998), where he also obtained his doctorate (PhD, 2010) and worked as a lecturer and researcher/consultant. In that capacity, he was involved in evaluations of the development-related export transactions programme (ORET) and the PUM Senior Experts programme.
At IOB, Alexander is the contact point for evaluations of various private-sector development programmes and the application of IRBC policy. He is also closely involved in reviewing the aid, trade and investment policy.
