Curriculum vitae

Brenda Carina Oude Breuil is assistant professor in Criminology at the Willem Pompe Institute since November 2009. She studied Cultural Anthropology at Utrecht University (1990-1996) during which she conducted fieldwork in the southern Philippines (Davao-City) on girls in gangs and moral panic (1995-96), and in Romania on children in institutions (1993). From 1996-1998 she worked as a youth worker (‘streetcornerworker’) in Amsterdam. She obtained her PhD at the Willem Pompe Institute for Criminology and Criminal Law in 2005. Her dissertation confronted the question how the Council of Child Protection in the Netherlands positioned itself in the Dutch multicultural society (De Raad voor de Kinderbescherming in een multiculturele samenleving (2006) Den Haag: Boom Juridische Uitgevers). She was assistant professor in Anthropology at the department of Cultural Anthropology of Utrecht University from 2003 to 2009.

At present, she is conducting research on human trafficking and youth migration to Marseille, France, focussing in particular on the occurrence of this phenomenon in relation to global inequalities and power struggles. She is specifically interested in the link between law enforcement conditions in new EU-member states and trafficking victimisation in these countries (e.g. Bulgaria/ Roumania). She has participated as expert in an international feasibility study, partly financed by the European Commission, on the possibilities of organized, voluntary return of trafficked children to their home countries (2007-2009) and coordinated an interdisciplinary research, funded by the Focus and Mass Research Programme Conflict and Human Rights at Utrecht University on ‘human trafficking imagined; myths on victims and perpetrators reconsidered’. She is currently interested in prostitution migration (and the eventual occurrence of human trafficking within this form of labour migration), forms of exploitation of migrant minors (e.g. in the illegal business of cigarette selling), excesses in forced migration and innovative, qualitative research strategies aimed at studying ‘hidden’ populations.

She currently is co-promotor of a study on the relation between a post-conflict situation and the development of the sex industry in Kosovo.
