About Bel

I am a researcher, writer, educator, community builder and editor originally from the UK and currently based in The Hague, the Netherlands. I have almost two decades' experience campaigning against racism as both an activist and a scholar. 

My academic background encompasses anthropology, political science and market research, with critical race theory threaded throughout. Broadly, I focus on the interplays between (cultural) belonging and the normative constructions of minority groups through (policy and marketing) discourses and audio-visual culture(s).


In 2013 I co-founded the European Race and Imagery Foundation (ERIF), a knowledge building/sharing organisation that curates scholar-activist platforms. We organise and attend international conferences, conduct and publish research, as well as nurture the efforts of anti-racist campaigners through a variety of collaborative activities.

Alongside this work, I teach and coordinate courses for the Global Project and Change Management programme at Windesheim Honours College, including classes on social justice and leadership.
