Integrating History in Dutch Public Policy

Perceptions, Practices and Interventions
Duration
1 November 2023 until 30 November 2027
Project member(s)
Prof. H.G.J. Kaal (Harm)
Project type
Research

Policy makers value history. They do not, however, systematically apply historical insights and skills in policy practice. This project studies why this is the case. Research will be aimed at three different Dutch policy contexts: the formulation of government policy, policy in a context of crisis, and co-legislation by the House of Representatives. The project results in the development of interventions that help to structurally embed history in public policy practice.
