Dr. Anita Böcker is Associate Professor in Legal Sociology at the Department of Law Sociology and Migration Law at Radboud University's law faculty. She studied social geography and cultural anthropology at the University of Groningen. In 1994 she obtained her doctorate in Nijmegen on the dissertation Turkish migrants and social security: from mutual care to government care. She then did research on a wide range of subjects, including the influx of lawyers from ethnic minorities into the judiciary in different countries; the integration of immigrants in the Netherlands and Germany; the social effect of equal treatment legislation; experiences of large companies with specialist justice facilities. Her most recent research projects dealt with migration and return migration from the elderly to Turkey; the stratification of Dutch aliens regulations; the revised asylum procedure; the transfer of judicial tasks to non-judicial bodies. She is currently conducting research into the emergence and significance of transnational arrangements in care for the elderly.
