New SIM fellows: Anneloes Kuiper en Caia Vlieks

The Netherlands Institute of Human Rights (SIM) at Utrecht University welcomes its two new fellows: Caia Vlieks en Anneloes Kuiper.

Caia Vlieks

Caia Vlieks is assistant professor of constitutional law at Utrecht University and connected to the Montaigne Centre for Rule of Law and Administration of Justice. She has been conducting research on human rights, nationality and statelessness for more than ten years, with a particular focus on Europe. In her current research, she focuses on fundamental rights and the legal concept of nationality. Her particular interest relates to questions in relation to (in)equality, inclusion, statelessness and migration in Europe and the Netherlands. In the past few years, Caia was programme lead at the Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion, an international human rights NGO, where she engaged in knowledge building and advocacy efforts on human rights. 

Anneloes Kuiper

Anneloes Kuiper is assistant professor at the Molengraaff Institute for Private law. She teaches on international and European tort law, including human rights related topics such as positive obligations, the horizontal application of human rights and remedies and just satisfaction. Her recent research focuses on the application of and obstacles for the ‘right to a remedy’ in national tort law, the development of human rights in relation to climate change, and the presumed role and possible effects of the EU Court of Justice interpreting international human rights law (due to the convergence between international human rights law and EU-law in the proposed Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence directive).
