His first degree, obtained at the University of Amsterdam, was on record, and he taught Leiden University from 2007 to 2012, where he graduated as a Doctor of Philosophy with a thesis on national identity, European identity, and multiculturalism. The dissertation was directed by Leiden professor Paul Cliteur and British philosopher Roger Scruton, and it was published in Dutch as The Assault on the Nation-State. The Significance of Borders, an English translation, was also published.
