Personal profile

Personal information

Lieneke Slingenberg is Associate-Professor and head of the Section Migration Law at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. She received her LL.M. in International Law and Constitutional and Administrative Law in 2005 (cum laude) and her PhD in 2012, both at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. From February to June 2018 she was a fellow at the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences (NIAS-KNAW). In 2018 she was awarded a Veni grant by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) for her research project entitled 'Human Rights Law, Non-Domination and Spatial Restrictions for Refugees'.

Lieneke is involved in (bachelor- and master) courses on migration law and human rights and offers on a regular basis training courses for professionals in the field of migration law. In her research she focuses on the intersections between social security law and migration law, in particular on the social rights of irregular migrants, asylum seekers and refugees.

Research

Lieneke Slingenberg has published widely on the social rights of irregular migrants, asylum seekers and refugees. In her work, she analyses how states use the provision of and/or exclusion from social rights as an instrument of migration control and how this relates to human rights law and political theory. In 2014 she published a monograph, based on her doctoral research, on state obligations under refugee law, international social security law and international human rights law with regard to the reception of asylum seekers (Hart Publishing). In her new research project (2019-2022), funded by NWO, she will investigate the (lack of) domestic, European and international regulation of spatial restrictions imposed on refugees and (rejected) asylum seekers, in the light of human rights law and the theoretical concept of freedom as non-domination.
