Welcome to my website.
"...and we should not simply measure what we can become by what we are today".
Paul Tillich 1959.
My name is Françoise Juliette Companjen.
From my affiliation with the VU University Amsterdam, I teach, consult and do research in three domains:
- communication in long-term care centres for people with dementia (PwD);
- intercultural management;
- nowadays to lesser extent: the South Caucasus.
Having a background in Human Resource Management and in Cultural Anthropology I have an overall interest in the construction,
attribution and communication of meaning both in macro (geo-political, historical) and micro (organizational and daily life) relations.
Some of these activities are combined under the flag of Caucasus Interconnect.
