The lecture series marks the start of a more intensive collaboration between both knowledge institutes in the field of research and education. The aim is to collaborate on education and research and to offer PhD positions and internships. For students of the Bachelor Security Studies and the Master Crisis & Security Management, this is a unique opportunity to learn more about the ins and outs of the Dutch landscape on crisis management. Policy officers and other interested employees from the Ministry of Justice and Security are also invited to attend. This will allow for an interesting mix of attending students and professionals. It is also the reason why the lectures will be held in Dutch. The lectures can also be attended individually.

Lecture 1. The Dutch crisis management system: learning from practice

The Dutch crisis management system will be the topic of the first lecture. The system will be discussed in terms of centralised and decentralised supervision, functional and general chains, and administrative networks. Prof. dr. Peter Bos will discuss his experiences of the fire in Moerdijk and the tram attack in Utrecht as part of his previous position of Director Public Health of the GGD region of Utrecht.
