Visitors programme

The Migration Law Research Programme of VU University Amsterdam has initiated a visitors programme. As of 2011, foreign researchers have been welcome to stay with us for a period of a maximum of six months.

We offer:

  • a stimulating working environment, in a leading migration law research group
  • a work space, access to the University library, photocopying facilities etc
  • assistance of the law faculty’s international office in finding housing in Amsterdam

We expect:

  • participation in the research group’s activities
  • a presentation of the visitor’s research project 
  • for visitors staying more than three months: one publication under the name of the Migration Law Research Programme
  • one contribution to our blog (www.verblijfblog.nl) 
  • if possible, work with the Migration Law Clinic
