Aanscherping sanctiebeleid SZW-wetten beoordeeld: vliegt de wetgever uit de bocht?

Tijdschrift Beleid en Maatschappij, Aflevering 2 2013
Trefwoorden Administrative fines, sanctions, social security, labour legislation
Auteurs Mr. dr. Albertjan Tollenaar
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    On January 1, 2013 an amendment entered into force, increasing the administrative fines in social security legislation and labor laws. The amendment also redesigned the way these fines were calculated. In this article these new fines are assessed for consistency. On the one hand consistency with the dominant tendency of localization of welfare states and on the other hand consistency with other penalties. Based on this assessments it is concluded that the new fines do not match the tendency of localization of the welfare state. Compared to other fines the increase itself suites the type of violation, but not with the type of offender. Moreover the amendment deviates with regard to the doubling of the fine, since the fine is based on the amount of the unduly paid benefits that have to be recovered as well. Finally the amendment deviates since the legislator obliges the administration to impose the fine: the administration has no discretion whatsoever.

Het eindeloze verhaal van de bestuurskunde: complexiteit, vernieuwing en de Big Society

Tijdschrift Bestuurskunde, Aflevering 1 2013
Trefwoorden Big Society, public administration, complexity, innovation, administrative history
Auteurs Thomas Schillemans
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    ‘Big Society’ has been one of those inspirational concepts that have recently swept through the public administration literature. With their appeal for a ‘Big Society’, the British Tories contrasted their policy program with Labours’ traditional ‘Big Government’ program. Upon closer inspection, however, it is revealed that the underlying analysis is not new at all, but reflects a specific analysis that can be traced back to Wilson’s famous essay on the study of public administration in 1887. Stripped from its details, the never-ending story claims that public administration now struggles with overwhelming complexity, which makes traditional bureaucratic methods obsolete and calls for innovative, new approaches. The fact that this story has remained fairly constant for over 125 years is cause for some concern. The article traces the historical genesis of this never-ending story and lands on a plea for more sophisticated attention for administrative history, more critical scrutiny of new ideas and more serious study of the nature and effects of complexity.
