“Utrecht University academics of research theme Security in Open Societies have evaluated the local radicalisation policy of the municipality of Arnhem. That was quite exciting to me as programme manager, but I also really appreciated the collaboration. The research team worked fully independently, but it was pleasant that there was room to discuss progress and bottlenecks, to ensure that the right persons and required input could be included in the investigation.

“I'm impressed with the broad knowledge they brought with them. And also with the willingness and openness shown by Scott Douglas and Beatrice de Graaf to discuss the findings with the municipal council of Arnhem. The final report provides us with clear recommendations. It allows us to improve our approach.”
