Migration Law

The research area migration law analyses how migration law functions in a globalised world and interacts with changing realities of – among others – refugee flows, increasing inequalities and an ageing population in Europe. The question arises whether – rather than with a ‘refugee crisis’  – we are not confronted with a crisis of the legal system regulating migration. International, European and national migration law is studied in an integrated way from a critical perspective, with particular attention for human rights implications. Where relevant, legal research methods are combined with socio-scientific ones, and interdisciplinary research projects are set up.
