MAURITS van Es is our new legal consultant on human rights.
MAURITS van Es holds Bachelor of Law from University of Amsterdam.
Bachelor of Political Science (Track: International Relations) from University of Amsterdam.
"My interest in human rights and the role of law as a means to counteract social injustice led me to work for a Dutch legal magazine, Rechtencircuit, for which I wrote columns and conducted interviews with experts in the legal social field. When I arrived, the journal’s main focus was on lawyers working at the big firms in commercialized law. I managed to shift the magazine's focus to also include lawyers who are engaged in the social or political field of law. Among others, I interviewed one of the best-known human rights lawyers in the Netherlands, Liesbeth Zegveld, as well as Channa Samkalden, a well-known Dutch human rights lawyer who, on behalf of an environmental organization and four Nigerian farmers, succeeded in holding Shell liable for leaking oil in Nigeria. Besides this, I am verry happy to tell that I recently started working as a guest teacher for Amnesty International at primary and secondary schools, to inform children about the importance and meaning of human rights." -MAURITS van Es
