This liber amicorum is dedicated to Prof. dr. Hildegard Schneider who has shaped the study of European migration and asylum law and was a pioneer in fighting against legal and practical barriers to free movement. Hildegard’s profound impact on the faculty of law of Maastricht University is well noticeable due to her multidisciplinary research and teaching initiatives, the creation of several multidisciplinary institutes and because of her early emphasis on the societal relevance of legal research. Besides being an excellent academic and an exquisite professional in the field of European law, Hildegard is a true master of the ‘art’ of crossing borders. She is not only an expert in migration law, but has a profound knowledge of ‘art law’ as well, specifically when it comes to the import and export of cultural goods. In this book, we have gathered a collection of academic contributions about topics that are close to her heart written by persons that are dear to her. We hope we will continue crossing Hildegard many times in the future, wherever it may be.
