Trefwoorden Klokkenluiden, Meldregeling, Advies en psychosociale ondersteuning, Onderzoek naar misstanden, Integriteitsbeleid en -management
Auteurs Dr. K.M. Loyens en Dr. W. Vandekerckhove
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Dit artikel bespreekt hoe het Huis voor Klokkenluiders zich verhoudt tot gelijkaardige instellingen in tien andere landen, gebaseerd op 21 interviews en de analyse van beleidsdocumenten en onderzoeksrapporten. Het onderzoek laat zien dat deze buitenlandse instellingen ook vaak door de overheid gefinancierd zijn, maar enkel gericht op klokkenluiders in de publieke sector. Onderzoek naar misstanden en benadeling van klokkenluiders wordt vaak door afzonderlijke instellingen gedaan om belangenverstrengeling te voorkomen, terwijl het Huis beide taken combineert. Verder valt op dat naast Nederland weinig landen overheidsfinanciering voorzien voor psychosociale hulp aan klokkenluiders. Advies en preventie zijn wel belangrijk in de meeste landen.

    This Volume is a special issue, almost entirely dedicated to the TMD symposium that took place on 1 December 2016 at the premises of Intersentia Publishing company near Antwerp. The symposium addressed the current Belgian and Dutch plans for new legislation aiming to further the use of mediation by intending litigants. The TMD Editorial Board is honoured that an insight into the respective plans was provided by the highest level authorities, that is: Mr. Koen Geens, the Belgian Minister of Justice, and Mr. Dennis Hesemans, senior counsel to the Dutch Minister of Justice. The Board is equally honoured that on behalf of the European Commission, Mrs. Karen Vandekerckhove, Acting Head of Unit at DG Justice and Consumers, was willing to discuss the outcomes of the recent official Evaluation of the EU Mediation Directive 52/2008. These findings made it possible to assess the Belgian and Dutch plans in a broader European perspective. The presentations delivered by these three keynote speakers have been reworked and are included as main contributions in this Volume.

De bescherming van klokkenluiders: recente lessen uit Australië

Tijdschrift Justitiële verkenningen, Aflevering 7 2013
Trefwoorden whistleblower protection, Australian legislation, human rights, anti-retaliation model, public sector integrity
Auteurs A.J. Brown
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    This article seeks to aid understanding of the ways in which different policy purposes, approaches and legal options can be combined in the design of better legislation, using Australia’s recently passed Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013. It provides a guide to key elements of the new legislation, as an example of legislative development taking place over a long period, informed by different trends. In particular, it is one of the first national laws to seek to integrate divergent approaches to the ‘anti-retaliation’ model of whistleblower protection, including its place in the employment law system, it sets new standards for the role of ‘public whistleblowing’ in such a regime, and provides new responses on basic questions of coverage, including which individuals are able to gain the benefit of the legislation. This provides lessons as to how different legal approaches might be better integrated, in pursuit of a clearer understanding of the interface between whistleblowing and other integrity reforms.

Kiezen voor stadsrepublieken? Over administratieve afhandeling van overlast in de steden

Tijdschrift Tijdschrift voor Veiligheid, Aflevering 2 2013
Trefwoorden social disorder, incivility, governance, communal sanctions, Mayor

SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    The theme of governing anti-social behaviour and incivilities in the public space became more important on the policy and research agenda over the last twenty years. This article describes the law on incivilities in Belgium, namely the ‘administrative communal sanctions’ (GAS). This law is studied in a broader context of contemporary crime control and its organizing patterns. The development of the politics of behaviour can be explained by different characteristics of the period referred to as the late modernity. In the dissertation ‘A culture of control?’ (Devroe 2012) we studied the application and the concrete strategies behind the governance of incivilities on a national and on a city level. The incivility law broadened the competences of the Mayor and the city council especially in the completion of anti social behaviour and public disorder problems in his/her municipality. Instead of being dealt with on a traditional judicial way by the police magistrate, the Mayor can, by this law; himself lay on fines until maximum 250 euro. We mention ‘city republics’ as this punitive sanction became a locally assigned matter, which means that one municipality differs from another in their ‘incivility policy’. Due to the split up of competences of the Belgian state arrangements of 1988, each municipality finds itself framed in different political and organisational executive realities. In this view, Mayors can be called ‘presidents’ of their own municipality, keeping and controlling the process of tackling incivilities as their main responsibility and determining what behaviour had to be controlled and punished and what behaviour can be considered as normal decent behaviour in the public space. Problems of creating a ‘culture of control’, creating inequality for the poor, the beggars and the socially ‘unwanted’ can arise, especially in big cities.

    The prehistory of criminology doesn't get all that much attention in the Low Countries. In the Dutch case many criminologists e.g. see the publication of Bonger's work in 1905 on crime and economic conditions as the real starting point of criminology. This narrow historical view overlooks the fact that, before the French Revolution, notably the ideas of Beccaria on crime and punishment sparked a rather fierce discussion in the Netherlands - this in contrast to the Austrian/Belgian provinces. Beccaria's views also inspired Calkoen to write the first comprehensive treatise on the prevention and repression of crime in 1778. Later, after 1830, two major figures in the prehistory of modern criminology stepped forward in the new independent state of Belgium. Quetelet was the first one in history to apply modern statistics in order to assess the nature, extent and development of crime problems. He became one of the founding fathers of criminal statistics. Ducpétiaux developed into an enlightened and brilliant defender of the Pennsylvania penitentiary system and completely rebuilt the Belgian system according to this model. Both men also had a notable impact on the discussion how to deal with crime and in particular on the construction of new prisons in the Netherlands. After the birth of modern criminology in 1876 - thanks to Lombroso - the writings of Quetelet were an important source of knowledge for Bonger and the Belgian criminologist Denis. Lombroso, however, equally had important followers in both countries: Aletrino in the Netherlands and Héger in Belgium. It is a pity that the (pre-)history of criminology in the Low Countries is not part of the contemporary international image of the history of criminology. Time has come to fill up this important gap in the historical analysis of criminology.
