Ina Hut is the executive director of CoMensha. CoMensha is an organization that focuses on the registration of trafficked humans, the coordination of the care for these people and the providence of information and advice on the topic of human trafficking.
She combined her studies in Pedagogy/ Educational Science with Business Administration. In 2003 she switched from the business world to the world of NGOs: she became the director of Wereldkinderen, focussing on adoption and project assistance. Working behind the scenes of international adoption practices, she gradually found out that adoption is closely linked to child trafficking.
In 2014 Ina Hut was asked to become the executive director of CoMensha, where she and her team have been committed to a better life for victims of trafficking since 2015.

Rijken studied international and European human rights law at Utrecht University and Tilburg University and wrote her PhD thesis on human trafficking. She has extended her field of research to other areas including global migration, European criminal law and inclusion and exclusion through migration. Central in her research is the focus on human rights and engagement with the position of the individual. Her research is characterized by creatively rethinking entrenched principles that are often taken for granted and generating new insights and ideas. Encouraging and inspiring students and other researchers are aspects she finds important in her work and which she will further effectuate as professor of human trafficking and globalization.
