The program Handhaving en Gedrag (Law Enforcement and Behavior) focuses on the development and dissemination of scientific knowledge about behavior in relation to regulatory compliance. The program is a partnership between Dutch Law enforcement agencies and looks at major policy and enforcement issues from various scientific disciplines. Handhaving and Gedrag is intended for policymakers, knowledge positions at supervisors and scientists.


Upcoming and established researchers conduct research on behalf of the program. Publications are mainly in Dutch. An English-language abstract appears for some publications. We will eventually include it on the website. For questions you can contact the organization.
