''Behaviour of groups and individuals plays a critical role in the many challenges inherent in societal transitions. However, we often tend to forget that simply reminding people to change their behaviour is not enough. Any call for changing behaviour should be accompanied with opportunities for true engagement.''

''I see it as my main task in working life to try to find (legal) solutions to today's societal problems using the law (the law of torts and civil procedure, most notably) in a creative manner while taking in inspiration from elsewhere (empircal legal studies, law & psychology, etc.) to cross traditional barriers, if needed. Working within Behaviour & Institutions is of invaluable help in achieving that goal.''

''Changes to people’s behaviour are critical to address the many challenges our world faces. But people are not isolated individuals; they are embedded in social relations and societal structures. The critical interplay between individual, social and structural factors takes center-stage in Behaviours and Institutions.''

''Institutions regulate behaviour. But behaviour of people in the same institutional environment is not identical. How do institutional effects vary across individuals and groups? ''
