Maas, Jean Monnet Chair and Professor of Political Science, Public & International Affairs, and Socio-Legal Studies
at York University, chaired
Science for three and a half years, Glendon Faculty Council
for four, and is also active in professional service, including currently chairing the CES Territorial Politics and Federalism RN,
serving on the executive of IPSA's Migration and
Citizenship RC, and remaining active in APSA's Migration and
Citizenship section, which he co-founded. Professor Maas has held appointments at Yale, NYU,
Leiden, EUI, and elsewhere, and
writes on EU and multilevel
citizenship, migration, borders, free movement, and politics focusing on Europe and
North America. He co-edits the new Oxford Studies in Migration and Citizenship book series and also heads the Canadian part of the Whole-COMM project, investigating the integration of migrants in small communities.
Years of European Governance (co-ed 2016) eleven
articles demonstrate the creative and often fragile solutions
found to address the challenges facing Europe by analyzing
transformations in European governance.
Citizenship (ed 2013) disputes the dominant
narrative of citizenship as a homogeneous status bestowed only
by nation-states; it considers overlapping jurisdictions, sub-
or supranational citizenships, and shared governance.
Citizenship and the Free Movement of People (ed
2013) challenges the normal way of thinking about free movement
by identifying barriers and disincentives to free movement,
against citizenship's promise of equality.
Citizens (2007) argues that European integration
involves not only economic cooperation but also a political
project of transcending borders and building a European
community of people.
