  • Profile

    Stefan Salomon is Assistant Professor of European Law at the European Studies Department at the University of Amsterdam. His research focuses on migration and refugee law. He researches how legal governance of migration changes citizenship and produces racial inequalities. His research also also covers questions of space and territory in EU law and international law. Stefan worked and conducted research in different regions and countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. He also serves as an ethics expert at the Research Executive Agency of the European Commission. 

    Before joining the University of Amsterdam, Stefan was a lecturer at the law faculty at the University of Graz, where he taught the Refugee Law Clinic, international public law and migration and asylum law.

    Stefan obtained his doctorate in law from the University of Graz. He also holds degrees in law and political sciences from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University, and the University of Innsbruck. He was a visiting research fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity, Göttingen, and the African Centre for Migration and Society, University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.
