Anjo Hekman

Anjo Hekman studied Dutch law at Utrecht University. After having worked at VluchtelingenWerk (Dutch Refugee Council) and the IND (Immigration and Naturalisation Service) he has been working as a lawyer since 1997.

Because of his broad and considerable experience, not just as a lawyer but also as a university teacher and through his work at the IND, he is able to quickly get to the heart of the matter and indicate the steps that need to be taken to work towards a solution.
