Helen Oosterom-Staples's research focuses on EU migration law, in particular the rights of EU citizens and their family members and Turkish nationals under the EEC-Turkey Agreement. She has also published on the EU?s rules on external borders, family reunification and the Long-term residents Directive. Her knowledge of EU and international law allows her to take a holistic approach on migration issues which has enabled her to identify gaps in the EU's protection regime.
