After graduating in Sociology from Utrecht University, Roel joined the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute (NIDI), where he was mainly concerned with the relationship between economic developments and international migration in Europe from the 1960s onwards. He went on to obtain his doctorate on this topic from the Demography department at the University of Groningen.
