prof.dr. (Liesbeth) LFH Enneking


Liesbeth Enneking is Professor Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability at Erasmus School of Law (Erasmus University, Rotterdam). She obtained her doctorate in 2012 for a PhD on the role of civil litigation in promoting corporate accountability for human rights and environmental violations by internationally operating business enterprises. Over the past twelve years, she has published widely on legal and policy developments relating to responsible business conduct in global value chains, both nationally and internationally.

In her capacity as legal expert, Enneking has been actively involved in legal and socio-political debates on corporate social responsibility, fair trade, business & human rights, and sustainable development. She frequently gives presentations at seminars and conferences in the Netherlands and abroad, and is regularly consulted on legal and policy issues within her field of expertise. She has taken part in a variety of (multidisciplinary) research projects, the majority of which have been externally funded by organisations such as the European Commission, the Dutch Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Security & Justice, the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) and the AXA Research Fund.

Enneking worked as a postdoc, assistant professor and associate professor at the Utrecht Centre for Accountability and Liability Law (UCALL) between 2013 and 2017. During the 2015-2016 academic year, she held a rotating professorship position at the University of Leuven’s Department of Law, a position funded by the Belgian/Dutch Tijdschrift voor Privaatrecht (TPR). She holds ancillary positions as a member of the independent Monitoring Committee for the Dutch Insurance Sector's Agreement on International Responsible Business Conduct (since 2018) and as an Independent Member of the Dutch National Contact Point for the OECD Guidelines (since 2021).  She is also a member of an Expert Committee for Universities of the Netherlands focusing on responsible and sustainable investment by the universities' pension fund ABP (since 2022).
