SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    This contribution presents a review of four publications, selected as building blocks for designing a policy for competent governance of Dutch housing associations. These publications are about:

    • hybrid organisations: Verhoef & Simon (2001);

    • securing public interests: WRR (2000);

    • problems around core tasks, side activities and achievements of housing associations: ARK (2014);

    • the complex separation of social and commercial activities: CFV (2014).


    After analyzing these four publications, a proposal is presented for the future governance of Dutch housing associations. An exclusive orientation on social activities, a discontinuation of commercial activities and a termination of state aid are suggested

Zoeken naar een evenwichtig veiligheidsbeleid: risicomanagement, onzekerheid en crises

Tijdschrift Bestuurskunde, Aflevering 3 2014
Trefwoorden risk management, uncertainty, crises, safety
Auteurs Dr. Sandra Larissa Resodihardjo
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    How far should governments go to keep their citizens safe? Not an easy question to answer, but the three books reviewed in this essay provide food for thought on this matter. Power (2004) describes how risk management could become such a dominant feature in today’s society while warning for the danger of risk management being misused to save one’s reputation if things do go wrong. Boutellier (2013) paints a picture of Dutch societal uncertainty and explains how crime became a part of Dutch risk society. According to Boutellier, Dutch government tries to deal with this complexity in an improvising manner. Van Duin, Wijkhuijs, and Jong (2013) present an edited volume of crises and incidents which happened in 2012. Lessons are drawn and warnings given, including the warning that it is impossible to prepare for all possible incidents, let alone plan everything ahead and distil those plans in rules and regulations.
