J.H.S. van Tongeren, LLM

Stefan van Tongeren (1992) studied Law at the University of Groningen (UG) and in 2017 completed the two-year Research Master's programme Legal Research (cum laude). During his studies, he conducted research concerning the resocialisation and reintegration of (ex-)offenders. From 2015 until 2017, Stefan worked as a research assistant at the Department of Criminal Law and Criminology, studying the resocialisation possibilities of life-sentenced prisoners in the Netherlands. During the last year of his studies, he conducted a comparative legal analysis concerning the housing of realeased prisoners in the Netherlands and the United States of America at the Department of Legal Methods. 

Since 2015, Stefan has been teaching various (Dutch and English taught) courses. In September 2017, he began his PhD-project concerning the housing of (ex-)offenders from a human rights perspective, again at the Department of Legal Methods. He is currently studying Dutch ex-offenders' possibilities to gain access to housing by obtaining a priority housing status.
