I know Bente from many years ago. And professionally I had the opportunity to work with Bente in the "Evaluation of Support to Civil Society Engagement in Policy Dialogue in Mozambique". She was the team leader for the case study. I found since then a person with a very impressive responsibility, excellent analytical skills and a positive quality of relationship with colleagues. Her strong research experience and excellent mastery of methodologies and innovative approaches for research and consulting offered me an important opportunity to learn from her.
