Stefan van Tongeren is a Dutch researcher working in the Department of Legal Methods at the University of Groningen. He is one of the coordinators of the EVICT project, responsible for data collection and for building and maintaining the project’s network.

Stefan is particularly interested in the right to adequate housing in relation to other (sometimes conflicting) fundamental rights. He is currently finishing his doctoral thesis which focuses on balancing ex-offenders’ right to have access to stable housing with (future) neighbours’ right to a safe and undisturbed enjoyment of their home.
