I would say that I represent an outlier of sorts. I do not fit into the refugee category and therefore am not able to access mechanisms set in place for those populations. They do exist though, and that is good. My situation highlights a more general difficulty with non refugee migration during transition. As transition seems to imply being temporal fixed. Lots of Dutch people like the VuMC, but they generally approached the system in a normative manner.

I’m trans, a PhD candidate in Gender Studies, and a researcher.
