Christopher Houtkamp is a Research Fellow at the Clingendael Institute. He is tasked with the quantitative analysis of the ‘Buitenland Barometer’, a large dataset on the attitude of Dutch citizens towards a wide range of foreign policy issues.

He previously worked as a PhD-researcher at the University of Amsterdam, as a member of the European research consortium MIME (Mobility and Inclusion in Multilingual Europe). His dissertation (2020) analyses the connection between language policy and migration amongst Turkish and Polish migrant communities in the European Union, with a specific focus on the transnational dimension of integration processes. 

Christopher holds a bachelor’s degree in Political Science, a master’s degree in European Studies, both from the University of Amsterdam, and a research master’s degree in Migration Studies from Utrecht University.
