Maartje van de Woude makes an appeal to all Leiden researchers in the field of migration, integration and borders
On 1 February 2018 Professor Maartje van der Woude (professor of Law and Society at the Van Vollenhoven Institute for Law, Governance and Society) became Associate Director of the Oxford-based Border Criminologies Network.
Border Criminologies is an interdisciplinary and international network of researchers in the field of borders and migration. The network’s aim is not only to bring researchers working in this field into contact with each other, but also to actively engage in a debate with politicians, society and the various actors in the field of supervision and enforcement. The dialogue is encouraged through an active blog, the organization of seminars and events as well as by making recently published research papers available via the widely read SSRN research papers series Criminal Justice, Borders & Citizenship.
In her new position as Associate Director of the active network that is linked to many renowned scholars, Maartje van der Woude invites all Leiden researchers working on themes such as migration, integration and borders to take a look at the Border Criminologies website. She also invites them to start blogging and to have their publications published in the SSRN series. Cross-posting your blog is allowed. Van der Woude has been active in the network for several years and blogged about the research she conducted at the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee. Currently she also blogged, together with her PhD students, about her NWO VIDI research "Getting to the Core of Crimmigration."
Van der Woude: "Knowing how much research is being carried out on these themes in various faculties – Humanities, Law and FGGA – it would be fantastic to make this richness of Leiden research clearly visible within this active network. Therefore, I would like to invite anyone having questions about the Border Criminologies Network to contact me.”
