Thomas Spijkerboer conducts authoritative research on Dutch, European and international migration and refugee law. He has published academic volumes, articles and opinion pieces on asylum-seekers fleeing homophobia, on migrants who die crossing the Mediterranean, and on the crisis of European asylum law. The outcomes of Spijkerboer’s research regularly prompt changes in European and national law and in aliens policy.
