European Journal of Migration and Law

European Journal of Migration and Law addresses migration law and policy with an emphasis on European countries and institutions. It is based in the Netherlands, where there has long been fertile interaction between legal and social-scientific scholarship on migration. The editorial introduction to the first issue of the journal, in 1999, explicitly stated that the journal should contribute to bridging this gap.
