In de spotlight door Nieuws.nl: Prof. dr. Tine de Moor vertelt haar verhaal

 

[Due to scope, only in Dutch] 

 

Ze studeerde geschiedenis en daarna ook milieukunde. Ze was actief bij milieuverenigingen en stelde zichzelf al van voor haar studie de vraag hoe we als wereld in de situatie zijn beland waarin we ons vandaag de dag bevinden. “Het was 1998 toen ik de studie milieukunde ging doen. Sindsdien is de klimaatproblematiek alleen maar erger geworden. Ik ben van de lange termijn analyse en wil vanuit de geschiedenis problemen die we vandaag hebben begrijpen, maar er ook inspiratie voor de toekomst uit putten. Door bepaalde fenomenen en mechanismen die er geweest zijn onder de loep te nemen, is het mogelijk om onze huidige situatie beter te begrijpen maar er ook wat aan te doen.”


In dit 'In the spotlight' artikel van Nieuws.nl vertelt Prof. dr. Tine de Moor haar eigen verhaal. Hoe is zij gekomen waar ze nu is? Wat is haar key to success? Hoe ervaart zij de academische wereld? Hoe kijkt zij aan tegen de verhuizing van haar team naar RSM? en nog veel meer...

PhD-position available on 'Institutions for Collective Action' with focus on mutual insurances

 

We are looking for a new team member to fill a PhD position on ‘Institutions for Collective Action’, with a special focus on the long-term development of mutual insurances. You will contribute to the UNICA project, which aims to build a unified theory that explains the factors behind the development and spread of institutions for collective action (ICAs) across Europe over the past millennium. In this PhD position, you will conduct a MICRO-analysis of internal functioning of mutual insurances. With this study we aim at delivering a specific outcome that will add to an integrated theory on ICAs: we will build scenarios that help us 1) to identify the impact of group and resource size and heterogeneity in terms of utility and equity, and 2) how institutional design is adapted to moderate these effects over time. You will be focusing on mutual insurances as the main type of ICA but will also work with other team members working on other types of ICAs (various types of cooperatives, commons, …) both in past and present.

PhD-position available on 'Pathways toward resilient social enterprises'

 

We are looking for a new team member to fill a PhD-position on ‘Pathways towards resilient social enterprises’! Social enterprises are a growing trend in business as a way to address societal issues. They combine a financially sustainable model with an ambition to create high societal impact and address many of today’s social and systemic problems (like poverty, health, inequality, climate change). You will aim at identifying the various models that exist in financing a social enterprise and will study the relationship between the various investment models and the type of governance models that can be developed to enhance the resilience and impact of  SEs as organisations over longer periods of time. A mixed-methods approach is adopted, with an interdisciplinary orientation.

The role of citizen collectives in fighting climate change: A #DTdialogue with Johan Schot and Tine de Moor

 

In this online interview by Deep Transitions, Johan Schot and Tine de Moor dive into the challenges that citizen collectives or institutions for collective action are faced with due to the values and rules of our current society and address the importance of such cooperatives and us, citizens, in tackling the climate crisis: Could the coordinating mechanisms of citizen cooperatives offer a feasible alternative to our current modus operandi and contribute to a Second Deep Transition? And what would our world today look like if we were to reintroduce governance structures that function according to collectively set rules and an economic model that is based on sufficiency rather than growth?

 

Please go to the website of Deep Transitions to see how Johan Schot and Tine de Moor explore these questions further.

Scientists develop method to test legislative proposals of Dutch House of Representatives  


Last week, Pieter Duisenberg, president of the VSNU, presented a practical method to strengthen collaboration between science and the Dutch Parliament to Khadija Arib, the Chairman of the Dutch House of Representatives. In recent months, three teams of two scientists have examined three legislative proposals. Tine de Moor and Bram Eidhof teamed up and used their expertise as well as (inter)national insights to test the law of ‘Aanscherping Burgerschapsopdracht Onderwijs’ (in English: Citizenship Tasks Education Act) against requirements from a scientific perspective. Questions that were included: ‘Are the policy goals logical and measurable?’, ‘Is there room for learning and improvement based on a well thought-out mid-term evaluation?’ and ‘Is justice done to the broad welfare goals?’. The so-called ‘golden standard’ that is developed and presented includes a plan roadmap for examination of legislative proposals, and makes it possible for scientists to take a close look at new legislative and policy proposals, upon request by the House. Through this, the scientific substantiation of legislative proposals by the Dutch House will improve.
