mr. J.H.S. van Tongeren

PhD student
mr. J.H.S. van Tongeren

Stefan van Tongeren (1992) works as a PhD-student at the University of Groningen's Department of Legal Methods. The preliminary title of his doctoral thesis is 'Housing Our Ex-Offenders: Balancing the Right to Housing with Neighbourhood Safety'. His PhD-project focuses on ex-offenders' problematic search for stable housing and on (future) neighbours' right to a safe and undisturbed enjoyment of their home. 

Stefan is currently researching ex-offenders' possibilities to find adequate accommodation using so-called 'certificates of housing urgency' (urgentieverklaringen, a type of priority housing). He is also carrying out a study on municipalities' efforts to prevent or respond to social unrest resulting from the arrival or presence of an ex-offender in the neighbourhood. Stefan conducts both doctrinal legal research and (quantitative and qualitative) empirical legal research. 

Within the Department of Legal Methods, Stefan is involved with the teaching of various English and Dutch taught courses.
