Anne van Mulligen is a former Research Fellow with Clingendael´s EU and Global Affairs Unit. As a lawyer and philosopher by training, Anne is driven by a fondness for clear argument and persuasive communication, seeking to draw new connections and engage others in his work. With a broad interest and expertise in international and EU law, his work at Clingendael Institute is presently concerned with EU external migration policy.

He also works as a researcher and lecturer at the CePTL,  VU University Amsterdam and ACIL, University of Amsterdam. Working at the interface of international law, democratic theory and political economy, his PhD examines the transformations (‘deformalization’), role and democratic legitimacy of international law in an era of economic globalization marked by the rise of informal transnational regulatory networks (such as the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision).

Anne holds a LLM in public international law (specialising in international trade and investment law) from the University of Amsterdam and a research master in Philosophy from the University of  Stirling, Scotland and bachelor degrees in both law and philosophy from VU University Amsterdam.
