Personal profile

Personal information

Associate Professor of EU and International Law. My research focuses on the regulation of human mobility across borders, and the interplay of law and other disciplines in this area. Recently, I have expanded the focus of my research to address the regulation of cross-border transfer of arms. I teach a wide variety of courses, ranging from fundamental rights in Europe, to public international law, transnational law in social context, and international weapons law. I coordinate two tracks at the LLM in law at VU university: transnational legal studies and international technology law, for more information on these programmmes see: http://www.vu.nl/itl and http://www.vu.nl/tls.
