Theme Migration & Refugees 

Keynote by Hein de Haas

Hein de Haas is Professor of Sociology at the University of Amsterdam and founding member and former co-director of the International Migration Institute (IMI) of the University of Oxford. His research focuses on the linkages between migration and broader processes of social transformation and development in origin and destination countries. 

Theme Education

Bowen Paulle, Assistant Professor of Sociology, is presently principal investigator of five-year, mixed method evaluation project in 'High Dosage Tutoring'. Initiated and largely managed at the grassroots level by a voluntary organization, the primary aim of this effort is to achieve measurable increases in the cognitive and socio-emotional development of roughly 1000 students attending four different primacy school students in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Rotterdam.

Nicky Pouw is Associate Professor in the Governance and Inclusive Development research programme (GID) of the AISSR. She is an economist with 20 years of research experience in international development studies, mainly in Sub-Saharan Africa.
