Volunteering for permanent residency and citizenship (completed)
Bouke de Vries
My research at MPI-MMG focuses on immigration requirements. Specifically, I investigate whether volunteering should be a necessary and/or sufficient condition for expedited access to permanent residency or citizenship. In addition, I am completing a book on illiberal groups based on my dissertation, as well as a number of papers on a variety of topics, including state neutrality, conscientious exemptions and free speech. During spring 2017, I have been teaching a Master’s class on state neutrality and multiculturalism at the University of Göttingen. I am also the convener of a working group on methods in political theory, a joint project with the University of Hamburg.
