The establishment of the Netherlands Institute for the Study of Crime and Law Enforcement (NSCR) has provided an impulse to the fundamental, independent and interdisciplinary study of crime and law enforcement, from which also the Ministry of Justice is ultimately able to profit.
The NSCR aims at:
- studying – in a fundamental, interdisciplinary manner – the interaction between crime and law enforcement with an accent on research in which processes are followed through time (although the NSCR also carries out contract research for a variety of clients, alongside the regular research programme);
- carrying out research, both independently and in collaboration with (para-)university organizations and publishing on these matters in scientific media;
- training of young researchers;
- developing a national and international network of scientific researchers in the field of crime and law enforcement, in co-operation with other universities and research institutes by organizing (inter-)national conferences, seminars, symposia, workshops and lectures on topical matters.
