LL.M. Alumnus Eric Strating: New Dutch Ambassador to Libya
We are delighted to congratulate our alumnus, Eric Strating. Eric was recently sworn in by King Willem-Alexander as the new Dutch Ambassador to Libya.
Eric and his wife, also our alumna, Henriette Strating are pictured here after the swearing in ceremony.
Eric and Henriette have just moved to Tunis where Eric will be based. He replaces Hans Sandee who is now Dutch Consul-General in Dubai.
Eric previously served as one of the heads of the Dutch foreign ministry’s North Africa and Middle East Department, and he has been shadowing Ambassador Sandee since his appointment was announced last December.
Congratulations, Eric and Henriette.
