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.
In her PhD. thesis, entitled The Legal Status of Third Country Nationals Resident in the European Union (Kluwer Law International, 1999), she contrasted the right to reside under EU law enjoyed by Citizens op the EU with those enjoyed by third-country nationals. She proposed to redefine the concept of EU-citizen by introducing a residence condition besides the nationality condition which is currently still used in the EU's Treaties.
