He specializes in EU institutional law and politics, and has published on government transparency policy and theory in and beyond the EU. He has previously held positions at the Faculty of Sociology, Bielefeld University, and the Amsterdam Centre for European Law and Governance (ACELG), University of Amsterdam. In addition, he has been a visiting fellow at the Research Centre for the Analysis of Governance and Public Policy in Europe (LAGAPE), University of Lausanne, and the Centre for European Research (CERGU), Gothenburg University.

Maarten's research interests include the policy and politics of information, transparency theory, EU institutional politics, socio-legal research, and informality. In the Academy of Finland-funded research project Transparency in the EU - From Reaction to Manifesto (TrUE, 2017-2021), Maarten focusses on the transparency policy of the Council of the EU and the institutional and social environment in which it comes about.
