Expertise Center ITEM has started a research project about cross-border internships in the Meuse-Rhine Euregion. The research, commissioned by the Meuse-Rhine Euregion and EURES, will be carried out and led by ITEM's 'de-borderer' between March 2017 and July 2017.
The Institute for Transnational and Euregional cross border cooperation and Mobility (ITEM) published a PhD Volume about the refugree crisis. The volume was written by PhD candidates of ITEM and includes separate contributions in which each of them tackles the topic of the refugee crisis from their own area of interest. The volume therefore discusses themes ranging from migration law and criminal behaviour to social security.
On 17 January 2017 prof. dr. Anouk Bollen-Vandenboorn, Professor of Cross Border Pension Tax Law at Maastricht University and Director of ITEM (Institute for Transnational and Euregional Cross Border Cooperation and Mobility) was interviewed by economic journalist drs. Freek Andriesse. The interview was produced on behalf of Sdu (NDFR).
