As an assistant professor Administrative and Migration Law at the Law Faculty of the University of Amsterdam I am involved in teaching in the bachelor and master programme of the Amsterdam Law School. In my research projects I focus on the social-economic impact of regulation. Pending projects concern (amongst others): - European and national regulation of migration, with a strong focus on labour migration - Exploitative labour situations and government involvement in the effectuation of labour rights of (illegally) employed migrant workers - Administrative sanctions on employers for illegal employment of migrants - the application of EU and ECHR law by national administrative courts. I wrote my PhD ( Staat, markt en migrant ,BJU, The Hague : 2007) on the regulation of labour migration to the Netherlands between 1945 and 2006. Furthermore, I have written on issues such as gender and migration and the free movement rights in respect to the enlargement of the European Union. I have also conducted, and participated in, several country comparisons. Recently the Dutch Association for Migration Research (www.damr.nl) was founded and I was one of the founding board members. As of December 2012 I have been appointed a member of the Advisory Committee on Migration Affairs (Adviescommissie voor Vreemdelingenzaken - ACVZ). Prior to my academic career I worked as an immigration lawyer with Everaert Immigration Lawyers in Amsterdam and as a honorary judge at the immigration chamber of the Amsterdam District Court.
