More information about Judith van Uden

Judith van Uden is a PhD candidate at the Van Vollenhoven Institute for Law, Governance and Society. Judith is part of the research project Living on the Other Side: A Multidisciplinary Analysis of Migration and Family Law in Morocco. Her research explores how Middle Eastern migrants deal with the formal aspect of major life events in Morocco and how the Moroccan government, in its turn, regulates major life events of migrants residing on its territory.

Judith started with a BSc in Cultural Anthropology and International Development Studies at Radboud University Nijmegen and continued specializing in the field of sociology of development and conflict studies by obtaining a MSc in International from Wageningen University. Her master thesis revolved around the role social networks for Syrian forced migrants play to ensure their livelihoods in Şanlıurfa, Turkey. Ethnographic fieldwork illustrates that the messy nature of social networks enable Syrian forced migrants to create possible synergies between people that could enhance their wellbeing.
