In the broader context of the programme Social Resilience and Security, we seek to bring together interdisciplinary insights in the field of transgressive behaviour, with representatives from five faculties (Faculties of Governance and Global Affairs, Faculty of Social Science, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Humanities and Faculty of Archaeology). In this programme, we seek to provide a broad and deep understanding of what actually concerns transgressive behaviour; how to study it; how to explain the occurrence of various types of transgressive behaviour; how to intervene, and how to assess the effects of interventions. These effects include, but are not limited to, the effects of social (individual) interventions, the use and objectives of legal interventions and the effects of policy interventions.
You will have the opportunity to develop as an academic, to hone your research and methods skills, as part of an enthusiastic, interdisciplinary and university-wide team, within a thriving research institute and faculty.
The appointment as a PhD candidate will be initially for a period of one year with an extension of three years after positive evaluation of progress and skills development, leading to the successful completion of a PhD thesis. The start date is 1 August 2020 (with the option of an early start from June 1). Salary range from € 2.325,- to € 2.972,- gross per month (pay scale P, in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities).

The Institute of Security and Global Affairs (ISGA) is a scientific institute that focuses on interdisciplinary research and education within the international scientific field of security studies. ISGA analyses and studies issues in a coherent way from their local transnational and global impact. ISGA operates from The Hague, the third major city of the Netherlands, centre of national governance and International City of Peace.
At the Institute of Security and Global Affairs, we study the aetiology, scope, patterns and explanations of interpersonal violence, and the impact these events and their perpetrators have on public order. In doing so, we adopt a multi-dimensional, interdisciplinary perspective, in which we use and adapt concepts from sociology, public health and public policy, criminology, victimology, forensic psychology and pedagogy – moving past traditional mono-disciplinary approaches. In our research, we seek to better understand when and how to prevent (future) violence, and to aid efforts to reduce the violence burden on society.
