ITEM-Publication: ‘Beyond the Refugee Crisis’
Anyone who thinks that all asylum seekers who are granted a residence permit in the Netherlands stay here forever, is wrong. Of all the people from Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, former Yugoslavia and Somalia who were registered in the Netherlands in the Personal Records Database (BRP) in 1999, a third no longer lived in the Netherlands ten years later. Which relocations immigrants make from their assigned place in the Netherlands is the subject of the PhD research by Marloes de Hoon at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. Her research is also included under the umbrella of ITEM (https://www.maastrichtuniversity.nl/research/institute-transnational-and-euregional-cross-border-cooperation-and-mobility-item), the Institute for Transnational and Euregional Cross-border Cooperation and Mobility. Together with five other PhD candidates at ITEM, she published the brochure ‘Beyond the refugee crisis: A reflection from different perspectives on the Dutch case’.
