How should we theorize race in the study of family migration in Europe? How have the history of colonialism and racism impacted the development of European family migration law, including the Netherlands? Betty de Hart (VU) will address these issues based on her recent academic work on the regulation of mixed intimacies in Europe. She argues that mixed couples, especially couples of white Dutch women and racialised migrant men, have been problematized as a threat to national identity in specific ways, impacting family migration policies for all.
