You can find here an overview of my recent books, articles, book chapters, and for those who prefer a shorter read I also provided links to my blogs.

I also have a google scholar profile. You can find it here (please note though that it does not allow me to add the citations of my latest book Migration&Mobility in the EU, which is a completely rewritten 2nd edition since it is not able to unmerge it with the first edition, that I haven’t co-authored)
