Title research: Living on the Other Side: A Multidisciplinary Analysis of Migration and Family Law in Morocco.
Judith van Uden is a PhD candidate at the Van Vollenhoven Institute for Law, Governance and Society (VVI). Judith is part of the research project Living on the Other Side: A Multidisciplinary Analysis of Migration and Family Law in Morocco. This research explores how Moroccan family law regulates major life events, such as birth and marriage, of migrants residing on its territory and how migrants in their turn deal with the legal aspects of major life events in Morocco.
Judith has a background in Cultural Anthropology and Development Studies (BSc) and obtained an MSc in Development Studies with a specialization in the field of conflict studies at the Wageningen University. Her master thesis was on how refugees from Syria made use of their social networks in Şanlıurfa, Turkey to ensure their livelihoods. This study shows the messiness of social networks, in that they overlap and vary in their dynamics, diversity, and socio-spatial range. This messy nature of networks enables individual refugees to act on possibilities to enhance their wellbeing.
