Migration and its consequences has always been at the centre of my research interests; when I studied cultural anthropology (MA in 1986), did a PhD in human geography (1986-1991), was a post-doc at the Free University in Berlin (1992-1995), worked as senior policy maker at the Dutch Ministry of the Interior (2000), was a fellow at the Transatlantic Academy in Washington D.C. (2008/2009), and presently as researcher with the Institute for Migration and Ethnic Studies(IMES)(1995 - present) and lecturer (2000 - present) at the Department of Political Science.
For a great number of years I have been teaching on the policy implications of global migration - migrants looking for better opportunities or in need of international protection. One course - a research and master thesis writing project - caters for (predominantly) IR graduate students; another is a working group suitable for all social science students. For undergraduate students I teach another thesis writing project, focusing on European integration and immigration policy making. Students who like to remain in touch congregate around the Global Migration Facebook site.
Key words: integration policies; international migration processes; migration regulation/policies; asylum and refugees; irregular/illegal migration; human smuggling and trafficking; migration statistics; borders; border management.
