Amsterdam 1994). She has published widely on international migration and immigrant integration (with a particular focus on Turkish migration to the Netherlands and Germany); the social and legal status of immigrants; the effectiveness of anti-discrimination law; and the regulation of migration and immigrant integration in the Netherlands and other European states.
