Jennekens in Law

Officially supported export credits are instruments that governments can use to boost or support their exports, either through insurances, loans or guarantees. Most governments provide this support through Export Credit Agencies (ECAs), the first of which were founded in the 1920s (Stephens, 1999).


Bob Jennekens is a Lecturer in Private Law (Corporate and Contract Law) at Maastricht University. Before joining Maastricht University, Bob worked at the Dutch Treasury and as a self-employed legal advisor. At the treasury, Bob negotiated on export credits standards at the OECD, EU and International Working Group.


Bob studied law, psychology, European Studies and Science & Technology Studies at the University of Maastricht and HSE Moscow (MA thesis).
