Geography & Education

Gijs van Campenhout is Assistant Professor Geography, Youth & Education at the Faculty of Geosciences. His research, published in various international peer-reviewed journals, mainly focuses on the paradoxality of football players with migration backgrounds in national football teams. While his research is mainly framed in the historical context of the football World Cup, he uses international football as a prism to further academic and sociological debate around international migration, (re)configurations of citizenship, and questions of national belonging.
