The NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies has prepared a new Research Agenda for 2020-2024. This text formulates the mission and aims of the NIOD Research Department. The purpose is to enhance the NIOD’s position as an agenda-setting, international player in the field of research, while staying in close touch with Dutch society and its international environment. The NIOD’s ambition for the upcoming years is to link the urgent questions of the present with providing new perspectives to the recent and often discomforting past.

In 2018, this ambition and strategy have been deliberated with the international Standard Evaluation Protocol-founded assessment committee and reconfirmed. Along the lines of the recommendations of the assessment committee and the subsequent advice of the KNAW/NWO Portfolio Committee, the staff commits itself to work towards reaching scholarly excellence in its field of work.
