Research Output per year
Maarten Bolhuis obtained his BSc in Criminology and MSc in International Crimes and Criminology (cum laude) at VU University and a MSc in Conflict Resolution and Governance (political science) at the University of Amsterdam. In 2010, he started working as a research intern on the Escaping Justice Project at VU University. During and after his studies he worked at a Dutch Human Rights NGO, Lawyers for Lawyers. From September 2012 to March 2018, he worked as lecturer and PhD candidate at the Criminal Law and Criminology department; from March 2018, he works at this department as Assistant Professor.
Maarten Bolhuis conducts research in the programme Empirical and normative studies. He is a fellow at the Center for International Criminal Justice (CICJ) and takes part in the Escaping Justice Project, which focuses on the implications of the application of article 1F Refugee Convention. On the basis of this article, persons who are believed to be guilty of committing international crimes, such as crimes against humanity and war crimes, are excluded from refugee protection. His PhD thesis focused on the role countries of refuge play in criminal prosecution of these alleged perpetrators of serious criminality.
The In Limbo Project builds upon previous projects in which Maarten has participated, but expands the scope of the previous research, to the situation of immigrants who are undesirable because of (alleged) criminality, but who cannot be returned or deported from the host country (undesirable but unreturnable aliens). The project's aim is to publish an accessible book for a wider audience.
