Emina van den Berg - Labour & Education

Emina van den Berg

Emina van den Berg is an experienced researcher in all fields of education, from primary and secondary to higher education. She has extensive expertise in efficiently collecting information from education establishments and students through surveys and interviews.

She uses this information in (quantitative) monitors and effect evaluations for various clients, including the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW). Her expertise is not least focused on the process for these surveys. She is very competent at developing, programming, conducting, and analysing surveys among various target groups, and at revising and thoroughly studying the results of these surveys. To this end, she makes use of econometric analyses and tests, combined with a critical eye and an attitude aimed at solutions.

Within the field of education, Emina has researched several themes. Some of the issues she has dealt with recently include school costs, accessibility of education, and the effects of a master’s programme for teachers. What she likes most about her work with SEO, is the diversity of issues she deals with and being able to contribute to policy developments with her research. She always strives for the highest level of instructiveness in the presentation of her results.

Emina graduated in General Economics at the VU Amsterdam in 2005. During her study she developed a passion for quantitative methods and techniques, which she applied to her graduation thesis on developing economics. After graduation she worked for nearly two years for the independent evaluation department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Policy and Operations Evaluation Department (IOB), where she was involved in the impact evaluations of primary education in Uganda and Zambia.
