He is also a consultant to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in Vienna, Austria, and a visiting professor at the University of Zurich and the University of St Gallen, Switzerland. Andreas’ principal areas of research include criminal law, organised crime, migrant smuggling, trafficking in persons, narco-trafficking, terrorism, criminology, and immigration and refugee law.

This course demonstrates the teaching-research nexus in action and uses a range of innovative teaching and learning strategies with a highly-engaged student cohort. It is specifically designed to encourage and improve undergraduate student research and pave the way to research higher degrees and academic presentations and publishing. Students undertake directed study on selected issues relating to trafficking in persons and smuggling of migrants. Students gain a general understanding of the pattern of, and the policies and laws relating to trafficking in persons and migrant smuggling, liaise with key stakeholders in the field, and have an opportunity to present their research findings to an academic audience and publish their written material. The course is also designed to equip students with advanced research, communication, presentation, writing and team-work skills, specifically in this field of study.
